I'm planning to take mine to John Wood whenever mine goes out, because he is in Southern California not too far from where I live. However, if I lived closer to Arkansas, I'd take it to BTS. If you don't live close to either one, you can always have the transmission removed by a local shop, shipped to either one for rebuilding, shipped back and reinstalled locally.

I just had BTS do mine a couple of weeks ago and I am very satisfied. I only live about a 2 hr drive from them so it was an easy decision.

For a "pro" rebuild, those 2 are the top choices. But if you or a local shop is going to do it (what I had to do) I'd suggest a BD torque converter and shift kit. That's the main things that will prolong the life of the transmission..and adding a 6.0/aftermarket transmission cooler. Diesel Site no longer sales the Tru-Cool mod for our trucks.

Well doing it beforehand can save a lot more cost down the road. Just make sure you got gauges and keep the temps in line and don't go over a 100hp setting.

What I said to do previously will cover you on a transmission for moderate tunes. 110 should be fine every now and then on a stock transmission, just dont be trying to break traction.

Precision Torque Converters

I'd start by installing a diesel innovations torque converter. The stock torque converter would have a hard time handling 110 extra hp.

You like leaving your truck at the shop? When my diode went, I could move but won't shift to Drive. I had Brian Fedex Freight the trans to my local terminal, had it loaded up in the back and drove it down to the shop. This was an after hours special but any of us can have the trans sent to the shop of choice and WATCH them put the thing in, put the old one back in the box and send it off. I got it one afternoon and sent it back the next AM but for a regular job, I would schedule it in the AM, bring the truck and trans there, install it and leave before they do stupid things to the vehicle.

I'm a little leery about that. You tell the builder what to install and when it breaks, he blames you. I would say that you should either take it as he wants to install it or find someone else. Been burned that way a couple times already. This way, it breaks and it is YOUR fault. Your build, your parts and you warranty it.

I have had to argue with GM because I used an aftermarket filter and it didn't fit and it fell out. Trans supposedly died of fluid starvation. Magnusson Moss only means they cannot deny your warranty if you use aftermarket parts AS LONG AS they cannot point it to your crappy part that failed. HOWEVER, what they don't tell you is that they can deny your warranty and let you fight them in court.

Most warranties besides JW and BTS are worthless when you mod the truck. See the fine print before you sign.
