Going to the Darkside....

No NOT A CUMMINS!

Seriously I am debating putting an auto behind a built motor and need some opinions and thoughts. If I do go this route is the 4r100 really the best route? (Forget about costs for a moment.....) What about a 47RE/48RE? What about an Allison? I plan on putting a hurting on whatever slushbox I choose and everyone one of these option have thier own unique issues. Throw out some ideas......

Re: Going to the Darkside....

iv heard some horror stories of beatins on those BTS 4r100 trans and they could take it. Supposed to be the real deal. Just what i heard, im sure plenty of guys will jump in that actually know something though. And you scared me for a second with that dark side talk, i was just thinking "why would somone who knows so much and does so much with the 7.3 just abondand us!?"

fwiw. An Allison will hold substantial power--- best part about it is they are one the simplest transmissions to build. You can almost literally build one on a kitchen table.... Figured you would know that being you already have an Allison...

Avoid the Allison like the plague. The 48re and the 4r100 are proven.

Dockboy doesn't air all his dirty laundry on the forums but maybe he will chime on on how many trans failures he has had...

Re: Going to the Darkside....

I thought the Allison was a real PITA to make handle "big" HP?
