Re: Solid 500hp transmission build

i prolly wouldn't run suncoast anything at that power level... call bts, jw, or twisted if your going to do it yourself and use their parts... all of them build trannys that hold more power then that unless your not going to build it to use it all the time and just puzzy foot around all the time then suncoast parts would prolly work..

I'm not going to build it I'm going to pay someone to. It's going to be an occasional puller so it needs to hold up. Is suncoast that bad? I've built plenty of Allison's with sulu coast components and never had a slip. But I don't speak ford lol maybe they are different

Suncoast is pretty reputable. A lot of people run their internals if you are going to be having someone local build it.

Re: Solid 500hp transmission build

suncoast is ok at near stock applications on a e4od/4r100... yes they do have parts for other trannys that do great at higher hp levels... but at 500 hp its a hole different ball game for a e4od/4r100... if your going to have some one build it then why not just order one from bts, john wood or twisted diesel... all known and proven time and time agian...

Re: Solid 500hp transmission build

No. But I would still use their parts. Suncoast parts won't hold at 500hp... BTS is close to 5000$ shipped to your door but that's with a 2yr unconditional warranty, unlimited miles and HP..
