Looking for some recommendations on a good trans for a mild built 6.0, mostly some spirited driving with little towing less than 8k. I would prefer actual experience over hear say.

I am going to use a BD Diesel trans in my 6.0, I have also installed and tested at least half a dozen of them. They get beat up and hold up very well. My boss has one too, and he's pretty hard on it.

I've had one person who has also recommended BD and they are on the cheaper end. But I haven't found a horsepower range that the transmission is good for.

I do remember that they are good to at least 600hp. Probably more; I spoke with Dan at BD diesel about it, but that was a while ago. I know because I am shooting for 600 in my 6.0, and I wanted to know if it would hold up to the abuse.

I was afraid of that the last dyno was 631 since then I've dropped tire size and will be making a few changes.

DieselSite makes a good trans, I have their E4OD and its been nice. They do a 5r110 that they can build up to 1000hp.

A cheap alternative would be upgrading to the 6.4l transmission it can handle more abuse than the stock 6.0 tranny. Unless your going high horse power then ATS, BD, or Suncoast
