Transmission People, your advice pls!
So my 6.0 went under the knife a couple months ago for the typical upgrades like studs, ported manifolds, exhaust, exhaust manifolds, etc. Based on what I have read, I should be in the neighborhood of 425-450 ish hp and 750 or more torque at max power. Won't be getting a bigger turbo or larger sticks.
The stock converter is rated at 750 torque so I was going to upgrade it... but the one manufacturer that is close by told be their trans shop will probably not grant me a warrenty on the thing cuz it's going in a used transmission. The truck currently sits at 250 XXX kms/150 XXX miles.
I heard these transmissions are pretty tough. Then it go me thinking. I bought this truck second hand and I am unaware of it's service history. When I bought it, I got the trans fluid tested and it was definiately overdue (obvisously got it flushed at the dealership). The trans is a big unknown it would seem cuz the problems (if any) are not well documented unlike the 6.0 engine.
I haven't had a problem with it. Shifts fine. Don't do a lot of hauling. Typicallly not my daily driver. Weather is typically moderate where I live. On the rare occasion, when I place it in "D" and hit the throttle, it might take a couple second to respond. Other than that, it seems fine.
I don't care so much about the warrenty (most of the time, they don't come in handy) as I am concerned with anything I should be doing or paying attention to. Should I just get the converter replaced and be done with it? What do you guys think?
