Post Bowler trans estimate for 400hp

I got an estimate today for a 400hp built trans with a billet triple disc converter. Just wondering if the parts they have listed will stand up to around 400 hp and 800 ft/lbs. Truck is stock for now except tymar intake and turbo back 4 inch exhaust. I know bts is the rave but being in college, money is tight. I want to build it once and be done.

Re: Bowler trans estimate for 400hp

I know you said you cant afford a BTS but from what I know I say pass and wait until you can afford a BTS. Seems everyone who has tried the route you want to take ends up breaking it and are out a few grand that would have covered a good chunk of a proven trans. If you want to build it once and be done take the advice of 99.9% of the people on here and go with a BTS the first time.

Re: Bowler trans estimate for 400hp

i know, i know. Yes, i wish i could afford a bts, but i want opinions on the build sheet bowlers gave me. I don't mean to sound like a d*ck, but unless you're a trans builder how do you know it wont stand up to what i want. Plus i would rather trust them than someone that has their own trans shop that isn't that well known. end of rant

Re: Bowler trans estimate for 400hp

Talk to the builder & find out what else he has built & how good he is on his warrenty. I know plenty of trucks running small shop trannys that hold up just fine & don't break the bank.
