The Factory Ford "heavy duty trans" was just installed in a buddy's truck. His family owns a local Ford dealer and he works there as a Ford motorsport parts man. He installed the trans at the dealer and the trans comes with a warrenty. He has only put a few miles on it and said the trans has made a big diffrence compared to his stock trans. He has also contacted Dp tuner for a chip for his truck and Jody is working with him since this is the first truck he has burned a chip that has the Heavy duty Ford trans in it. I have no detailed info on the trans, but i now its a brand new unit (not remain) and has increased clutch packs, heavy duty converter and internals..thats all i know.
Hope he knows he just voided his warantee, If Ford knows
he chipped it and something happens he is buying another
one. Brian could care less....
Do the math as long as that tranny last (Forever) then
you have saved money. But...........If it dont and and there
is a good chance it wont. Then you have just bought 1 1/2
BTS trannies. For me it was a no brainer. I just feel if ford
couldnt get it right the first time, I wasnt rewarding them
a second time by buying another tranny. I have drove a
truck with the Ford reman tranny in it with a load behind
it and I was not imperssed........................At all with its
