There several brands out there to choose from. Suncaost, Goerend, DTT, ATS, and a couple others. Personally I recommend Goerend, but they are all good quality.

What mods are you running? How many miles does it take you to eat one? Do you keep having the stocker rebuilt, or are you buying rebuilt ones, if so from who? Heat is the major killer for these transmissions, I highly recommend that you install a trans temp gauge and see how hot you're getting. It may be time to replace the stock transmission cooling system, as well as install a more efficient converter. The stock torque converter generates a lot of heat. The builders listed in Bouncers Post above are a good place to start. Down in Tx, you could probably get relentless Diesel to build you a good transmission.

My nieghbor had the same issue and it ended up being his tranny cooler. From what he told me there is a check valve in the coolers and it was stuck in the closed position. When he tole me that i never knew that a tranny cooler had a check valve. Ever since then his truck has been fine. Does anyone know why there is a check valve in the cooler?

check ball valve is in the heat exchanger under the turbo they plug up constantly from what I have heard... I know mine did so I have bypassed it and the temps have stayed low.


So your just getting your trans rebuilt and using the stock converter? Are you having all the work done at a shop and having them flush out the complete system? If your stock trans cooler is plugged you will not know except for heat because there is a tube that connects the two hoses into the cooler so it will bypass it and the trans will still shift fine. Mine did this and would only heat when towing. I have basically same setup and did a new converter with billet input shaft and mine has been great.
