DIY?

Hey guys. I was wondering about getting a used trans outta an OBS and then getting the Extreme Duty rebuild kit from Sun Coast so that if/when my stocker goes out, Id have a built replacement ready to go and then Id just need to buy a good TC to go with it...BUT, is rebuilding a E4OD a task just any one can do themselves at home? I was just thinking this would save alot of coin

noob transmission rebuild ... for the poor man - Ford Powerstroke Diesel Forum

You can doit!!!!!!!!!!!!
But it still will not be a pro built trans. I am sure there are tricks and stuff they do to make them hold up.

Re: DIY?

Thanks for the link! Im sure your right about them having their touches they add...

You guys know if that kit I mentioned would be the way to go? I would just want it to be able to take the power of the stuff in my sig plus stage 1's/2's

Re: DIY?

Talk to RacerX. He's a good guy on the E4OD, and he sells the parts. Between a few e-mails to him, and a good rebuild manual, it wouldn't be too bad as long as you take your time.

Go ARMY!

Re: DIY?

Cant go wrong with racer X. Honestly a shift kit/valve body and a good triple disk TC is all thats really needed for stage 1 or 2 injectors with the proper tuning and not driving it like you stole it all the time.
