4r100 - sonnax / tricumulator removal question (back to stock)

Does anyone know what parts are needed? The parts I removed from the VB during the install of the valve/springs are a safe place, safe from me at least

Anyway, it seems easier to remove the stuff than to have the chip reburned...

Re: 4r100 - sonnax / tricumulator removal question (back to stock)

If you want to tone the shifting down because of the tuning,use a sonnex 372 valve.A famous trans builder everyone loves said to scrap the 427 valve.I used the 372 with transgo springs from a tugger kit and sonnex shift valves on the 1-2,2-3 shift.I used a trannsgo steel valve on the 3-4.My trans shifts awesome finnally! FAST and without any harshness under any conditions.

Hello Riverjet! What valves fron sonnex did you use for the 1-2 and 2-3 shift, was it these valves? E40D 4R100 transmission accumulator valves E40D shift kits

and the steel transgo valve that you used for the 3-4 shift, was it included with the Tugger Kit?

My truck is a 1993 7.3 Diesel with the 4x4 E4OD.
My transmission is dead, so I picked up a powerstroke 95 with an E4OD, it should have the important updates from ford, the powerstroke motor is on its last leg, but the transmission shifts really good!

I plan to use the E4OD from the 95 powerstroke and put it into my 93, I know that I will need to swap over the coil pack and possibly shifter linkage, because the e4od out of the 95 is powerstroke it has 6 stud torque converter, so I will have to buy a new torque converter, below is my shopping list, did I miss anything?

converter(wish these cost less, but don't wanna cheap out and regret it): Hughes Performance Extreme Towing Diesel Torque Converters 46LXFM - Free Shipping on Orders Over $99 at Summit Racing

Transgo Tugger kit: TransGo Automatic Transmission Reprogramming Kits 4R100-HD2 - Free Shipping on Orders Over $99 at Summit Racing

.372 sonnax modulator valve: E4OD Transmission line pressure modulator valve Sonnax 36948-05K

is this the spring for the modulator valve? (does the tugger kit include a new modulator valve spring?) E4OD 4R100 Transmission main pressure regulator spring E4OD 4R100

metal drainback valve to replace plastic one: Sonnax 36425-01K E4OD Front lube and converter drain-back valve.

sonnax sure lock retaining ring (oem ones come loose and tearup tranny?) E4OD 4R100 Overdrive piston return spring retaining ring. Sonnax 36744-01

are these the sonnax valves for the 1-2 and 2-3 shift? E40D 4R100 transmission accumulator valves E40D shift kits

I also found this, but for a pan its kinda spendy, but would give me a better location to mount a tranny temp sensor:



this shopping list was created after reading various posts about e4od rebuild, and kits.

Re: 4r100 - sonnax / tricumulator removal question (back to stock)

yes, but of all the threads, this one has more first hand experience from riverjet than i've seen anywhere else. he using both the transgo kit and sonnax valves as well as using a 372 over a 427, most of which is similar to what ive come to the conclusion I would like to do, so was really hoping to get some feedback from them.
