Plan on spending anywhere from $2500 for a Suncoast up to $4300 for a BTS. BTS is the way to go when it comes to 4R100's, and word had it that the customer service is second to none.Any recommendations on a good quality inexpensive 4R100 for my 01 7.3? Has anyone had any experience with the ATS rebuilt transmissions?
But if I exceed that power level?The entry level trans is rated for 375 at the wheels. You get a written 3yr warranty. Pretty sure he'll fix it if you break it at that power level
Don't get me wrong, BTS is a great trans. JW's just seems very reasonable, to me.
It uses a 6.0 converter.
Well, I'm just raising that question. If someone knows, they can chime in. DOCKBOY and others have mentioned that BTS will fix it for free AFTER the 2 yrs are up which makes the $700 more an absolute bargain. Since he doesn't care about the power levels, there is no issue of what happens if you go over 375HP. Other than that, both builders have about the same reputation so that is what I felt gave BTS the edge when it came time to buy a trans, at least for me.I don't know. But don't you think we should let the Original Poster decide for himself?
I'd also like to take a look at Brian's operation one day. Hopefully within the next year or so...
Your trans lasted a year after it started slipping? How did you manage that? Whenever mine starts slipping, it is usually toast. One day I noticed that the rpm was higher than it should be by 200 rpms as I was going to work. Parked it at work and by night (5 miles later), the trans was limping along.It took me almost a year to figure out where I wanted to get my tranny from since the first slip.
Do your homework and find a builder that will fit your needs and your budget.
Lasted ALMOST a year. 2nd and 3rd gear clutches were toast. I have no budget, only debt. Its the american way.........Your trans lasted a year after it started slipping? How did you manage that?

Budget? oke: What's that? I thought you opened up the wallet and when it is empty and the charge cards are full, that was it? LOL
