Re: excursion trans woes please help!
How long do you plan to keep the truck? If you are looking to dump it tomorrow, Aamco, Jasper or your local re-builder will be fine. If you are looking for the next 3 years and don't want to mod it, get the Ford reman. If you are looking to keep it AND mod it, I'd get a BTS. I read about Dockboy who has broken several transmissions and he races and all were covered even AFTER the 2 yrs was up. In my case, he gave me credit for the VB
, sight unseen. I bought his VB
, installed it and the 01 diode locked up and trashed the trans. Drove it for 100 miles in black and burnt fluid with debris in it.
Brian's Truck Shop can easily be reached at 870-422-3673. He has helped me with other stuff not related to his trans too. Just another satisfied customer. Check with him about his dealers who might be close to you and might even be able to install it for you. Even if you use your other installers, it should not be rocket science to install a trans.
