I know most people go with the Suncoast option.......Id like to aswell but Im still exploring my options and wondering what thoughts are out there on a BTS tranny in a 6.4?

Are there any programming issues that I should pay attention to/ask about?

Im wondering if its just as simple as putting a Suncoast in........Im not worried about the quality or reputation of BTS Im just wondering if it would work or not with the 6.4 and spartan tuning etc..

I would like to go with BTS since his shop is only about 5 hours from me and if something was to happen it wouldnt be too big of a deal for me to just trailer it over and have it fixed under his warranty. Im pretty sure his complete setup is about $1500-2000 cheaper installed.

thanks

BTS built great 4R100's for years, so if the there 5R110 is anything like that you should be good. The Suncoast has been a great drop in unit for many, but we build our trannys inhouse using Suncoast parts. There are many different levels to build these trannys, including converter stall speed,billet shaft(s),hub and drum assembles, etc. Suncoast is working with two heavy hitters in the 6.4 market(Matt at Spartan and Aaron @ Rudys, who holds the fastest powerstoke/1000+hp 6.4). Suncoast has proven themselves time and time again, and are constantly moving forward with cutting edge products for the trannys.

you might consider a full elite trans, its got a suncoast converter, and alot of suncoast parts, but tadd puts his little touches on it to make it that much better.

It all depends, if you want the billet input, intermediate ect and the OD planet its going to be alot more than your standard trans, IM sure once all the parts are finalized tadd will post prices but for now its a build as needed type deal.

I will put it this way, i havent seen any converter failures from a 6.4 most trans failures come from the OD clutches or the direct clutches.
