6 Pos. Chip tranny mods.

Hey guys, awesome site. I'm just wondering what you guys with autos and 6 pos. chips do to your trannys to make them last. I just broke down and bought a sonnax trispring kit from black cloud diesel. I understand a lot of you have BTS or monster box trannys, but what did you do to the stockers to have them hold up a little longer, and how long did they last with the chip.

Thanks,

E

Re: 6 Pos. Chip tranny mods.

You just never know how long these trannys are going to hold. I have been one of the lucky ones, I have a pretty hot chip (but no other real go fast mods really - see sig) and it has held for a year and over 20,000 miles now. While I do take it to the drag strip once in awhile and drive it pretty hard daily, I don't pull anything of any significant weight, so maybe that is where I am saving it. I suppose that maybe the Banks Transcommand has helped.

I do, however, have an appointment at BTS in early May, because I know my time is short.

Good luck with yours.

Re: 6 Pos. Chip tranny mods.

Most chips can boost the line pressure in the tranny, which helps longevity. A aftermarket torque converter will usually last a long time with the factory tranny. you can replace the fluid with full synthetic, which keeps the temps down, which is probably the most important factor in tranny life. I have 120,000 miles on my tranny, and it is holding up well with the Suncoast torque converter.

hope this helps
