Re: Can I Mod My Transmission

You will pry be okay for a while. Looking at your signature you don't have any big power adders and that is when you will find the weak links in the trans. You may burn the clutches up a little quicker though with the converter engaging much harder.

Re: Can I Mod My Transmission

I have around 20 passes on my stock trans with a PI TC and a sonnax/tricumulator kit. Both from David Lott of Diesel Innovations.

Yep. I have been running mine pretty hard with a heavy duty TC and sonnax valve and tricumalator spring also. For over a year now.

Re: Can I Mod My Transmission

I dissagree, I am a BTS dealer and accourding to Brian he doesn't like seeing anyone use "his" Tq in a stock trans. Even a PI will require Pump mods.

A better solution is get a 6.0 Tq converter thats made for the 7.3 and a BTS VB

You don't need any kit with a BTS VB.

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: Can I Mod My Transmission

I love my combo. Diesel Innovation got me a PI TC and Sonnax Tricumulator and they work awesome together. David also sponsors PowerStrokeNation.com....
