What are you considering mild build? With a good TDTC, VB, Clutches, and Billet Input 500 wouldnt be a problem...if you're going to launch it a lot and burn rubber a Billet Output should be had...

Stock imo is good for 50-70hp over stock, but its still stock, if you don't upgrade it any, its not going to be any better then what you've already tore up...

By mild built I just mean enough to hold an edge comp and maybe a smarty stacked. Enough to hold those two and to tow and it be reliable. Nothin too crazy.

You should be able get a converter, valvebody and good rebuild, installed out the door for around 4200. If you just have the trans built and you do the install, it should be closer to 3000.

Well your stock tranny will not hold up at all to what you want to do with it. Just the smarty on 9 which is all the way up will affect the torque converter and it will chatter. Been there done that. I got my truck with 50k and drove it normal, I didn't beat the crap out of it because I only wanted to upgrade my tranny and use the stock clutches. Right now I have a smarty stacked with a bluechip FMS box, 100hp DDP injectors, Garrett stage II turbo, FASS pump, MBRP exhaust, AFE cold air intake, Bluchip Special X VP44 and the tranny has Suncoast upgraded parts. I was told I would be putting out between 400 and 500 hp with everything I got, but still have to dyno it this spring to see what the numbers are. I upgraded my valvebody at 80K and I pulled the tranny at 110K because the torque converter was getting tired. So I upgraded to a 44 series Suncoast converter, billet input shaft, 5:1 ratio apply lever, Strut, Anchor, 4 Ring Piston and Band kit, lockup controller, billet flex plate, and a mag hytec double deep tranny pan. The toruqe converter alone was $1350 all together in parts was around $3800 - $4000. If your worried about spending that much, well let me tell you something, all I do is drive my truck daily and some towing, and once in a while take it to newengland dragway for some weekend fun withoout pushing my limit to much. My tanny has been totally fine even though I didn't do a complete rebuild. My tranny has done everything I asked it to do with the truck and have been extremely happy with the suncoast product and would recomend them to anyone. To me this is mild and is an extreme towing machine. Any more performance stuff to this truck would make it undrivable on the street. Its setup perfectly.
