4r100 Question (Please)

I just had a brand new stock tranny put in my F350, new converter and all. I was wanting my tranny to last for along time as everyone else does, and i was wondering what i could do to it to help prolong the life of it? I dont tow anything with it, no major horsepower, just an edge evolution programmer, with built in gauges, settings, tow, race and extreme, i just have a lead foot sometimes but i know the limits. But anyways, i was wondering what i could do to it like an aftermarket valve body or something, that would make it last, and the only other thing im gonna do to it is some exhaust, so like i said no major horsepower.

Thanks

Start with dumping the edge tunner. Many an edge tunner has taken out transmissions. A custom tunned chip from any of our fine sponcers would be much more friendly to your tranny.

Dump the Edge and get custom tunes and a John Wood or BTS valve body. I also added an external spin on filter & a trucool cooler.
