What trans. mods. do I need

I have a 2001 cummins 4x4 auto 4.10 gears 117000 miles with a superchip programer 4 inch exaust and a after market intake. My goal is to build a 450 to 500 hp truck. I want to start with upgrading the trans. first. What would be a good torque converter and trans. package for me?

ATS is alittle over priced, i know. I'd go with Suncoast when I do it all again. I will admit the ATS 5 star is nice though.

Well I have a buddy w/ the 5-star. That torque converter Co-Piloet Lock up Controller is AWSOME!!! it runs good, but very high! I also looked at buying a truck w/ one, but stupid bank guys cant understand it!

Suncoast makes a stout rebuild kit, if you were lookin to save some $ you could buy that kit and take it to a good trans shop.

Now with that in mind. Does a company like Suncoast just take that rebuild kit put it with their t/c and v/b and call it a trany? Or is their other stuff they do to the casing. I know they put the lever and accumlater piston and what not in. But is there anything they do to the trany, that they don't sell parts for..............:shrug:

Well suncoast calls it a tranny even without a TC in it. Their price on a trans does not include converter. Also their base price transmission doesn't include any billet or upgraded parts.

As for the rebuilt kit. Yes, its what they do only not installed. If you buy the kit and all the components you want, and have somebody install it, its essentially the same as having a trans built by suncoast. Once you add up the parts and labor though of having someone else install it, I don't think it will be that much cheaper, but it should save you a bit on shipping and a core charge.

Heck if there's no difference. Then I know what I'm doing next time. I thought maybe they bored some passages out in the case and stuff like that. I like rebuilding these trannys. I've just never did much other than stock.
