Well, it depends on what mods you have and how many miles are on your truck. If you fill out your signature, it will help us help you. If you really want to start competing with your truck, and putting down some impressive numbers, you'll want a trans that not only has upgraded Tc/Vb, but better internals. If you plan on making over 450hp, I'd seriously suggest looking into some billet as well, input, output, mid. Suncoast and DTT are both very reputable sources, I personally won't go the way of ATS nor would I recommend them thats just based on what I've seen some people I know go through. There are some other companies making transmissions that are supposedly very high quality, however, I have no experience with them so I can't talk.

Hope this offers a little insight, and welcome to the garage.

true to that! do you have any plans on a turbo? After a certain amount somewhere near 32psi, the hx35 starts pushing hot air, and just building heat. They are a pretty limited turbo and will usually only show 350rwhp but can be pushed to around 400ish, however that comes at the price of a lot of heat. I would definitely put a turbo on your list, especially with the HRVP on top of big injectors.

I have a goerend t/c, it is pretty nice. He was great to deal with and has been around for a long time. Just another suggestion.
