Re: Banks trans command install

Its really such a simple thing to do, you should do it yourself. It literally plugs in between the factory harnes. Just go buy a couple self drilling sheetmetel screws to use with an electric drill, mount it to your passenger side with these and plug the couple plugs in. It should take you 30 min once you get the drill out and pre-read the instructions. My wife installed mine while I was out of town....she's a keeper!

Re: Banks trans command install

If you do it yourself you'll be mad at yourself for almost paying someone to do something so easy.

If you still would like to find a shop someone <font color="purple"> HERE </font> will know where to find one close to you.

Re: Banks trans command install

Is the Trans Command worth the money? What are the trans codes to determine if it is an E4OD or the 4R100 tranny? I just bought an 01 F250 PSD and was wondering if the Trans Command or the FTVB

Their are two different Part#s for the E40D 62560 / 4R100 62570 it works great with OEM up to additional 80hp after that I would recommend TC &amp; Pump upgrades with a commander or equivalent.

Re: Banks trans command install

I really liked the difference it made on mine over stock. I had it on for about 3 1/2 years with no complaints. I recently got a BTS Valve Body and it is again that much better than the Transcommand. I would think that the FTVB would be better than the Transcommand and the BTS would be better than the FTVB. Brian will set the valve body up for your truck and adjust it to what you want plus you can fine tune it yourself with Brians help if you want to change anything or if you add more HP or something. Mine shifts nice and firm when I'm really getting after it but softer if I'm just cruising around. I have heard that the FTVB is pretty much real firm all the time. Like I said that's only what I have heard. I have no hands on experience with the FTVB. Hopefully HAMMER69 will see this thread as he has had both and is fairly knowledgable on this subject.

Re: Banks trans command install

You may want to seek out a few options for your tranny before you settle on the Transcommand. I had them on two seperate trucks and
they seemed to cause strange electrical problems when ever they got
moisture on or around them. Sounds strange, but true. You can probably
find a better product for less money as Banks tends to be VERY proud
of their products.

Re: Banks trans command install

As far as being worth the money I would say they are overpriced. Considering the prices on the FTVB and the BTS the transcommand wouldn't even be a consideration. Go with one of the valve bodies. After reading many posts on this subject I've determined that adusting your line pressures mechanically is much better than doing it electronically. As far as installing a valve body, it is really easy. Less than an hour. The only thing about then Transcommand is it's not as messy.

BTW, How much are the Transcommands going for now? I paid less for the valve body last month than I did for the transcommand 3 1/2 years ago.

Re: Banks trans command install

Prind, with your 4" exhaust, it's a pain in the a$$. I had to unbolt the heat shroud (all 4' of it), push it back, and try to contort my hand/arm up to get to the tranny connector. 5 minutes once you get the connector off. Then you need to reverse the heat shield uninstall.

The instructions look easy on a stock truck. Either that or my hands are too big. You know what they say about big hands? They don't fit in tight places. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

Re: Banks trans command install

My exhaust was still stock at the time I did mine. I can see what you mean now that I've looked at it with the bigger exhaust. One more reason to just do the valve body.
