Tranny build ?

I have a 4r100 and was thinking of building it for my P-pumed setup Im doing this winter. I have a guy(friend) that will build it for $650 this is what I have (suncoast Extreme kit) what Billet part's you all think I would need ?what valve body ? TC will need a stall ? I plan on running pretty close to 1k HP would it hold? will also be running a stand alone tranny control unit.

Thanks in advance Steve-0

Re: Tranny build ?

You would not save much paying someone $650 to build your trans and getting the parts necessary to hold that HP. Worst is when it blows..since you can't get the custom parts that BTS or JW makes you have no warranty.

If you would like a price shiped for a BTS PM me.

We only carry the BEST parts and never compromise just to get a sale.

Dealer for: Full Force, Tymar, BTS, Icon, Pure Performance, TW tunes, just to name a few.

Re: Tranny build ?

Yeah but it would be just about the same if i had a respectful tranny builder build my tranny with the parts that I want.Im sure he would rebuild it for close to nothing after that. plus shipping,cost and turn around time if something happens. I have the suncoast rebuild kit just liken all the billet accessories and the valve body all this will be from suncoast, will bts warranty the tranny I put behind this engine that im shooting for 1,000 hp?

thanks steve-0

I'm not a AT tranny expert but I'd think that you would want billet main and output....I'd want the input as my weak link since its easy to change.

Why don't you just call Brian and have him build you a transmission? Everyone that's had issues he's taken care of...

Well Ill tell you why. #1 when the BTS breaks I have to take out, ship wait a week or so to fix the problem when I can just call my buddy and comes down and fixes it there on the spot. I understand were you all are coming from when pulls start I have a very small window to have the problems fixed before the very next pull. Ill think about it

Personally, I see a homebuilt transmission breaking well before I see one of Brian's breaking.

Until you have seen/had one break don't assume its easy to change .The last one that I had a hand in the converter had to go back to precision to get the broken shaft plus part of the pump removed and they ended up repairing/replacing the stater I think.
