Don't know the failure points for sure, but suncoast makes a built 68rfe. Not sure if your talking auto or manual?? If manual, then the clutch is the first point of failure, and there are a few place to go for that also.

I don't see anything on Goerend's site for the 68rfe. I'm not sure they make anything yet.

Jeff Garmon is definitely your man then. He's in Griffin GA, not far across the border heading to ATL.

If you haven't heard of him, he's one of the best trans guys in the country.

I'm talking to him on another forum right now to make sure he is doing the 68RE also. I'll post back and let you know along with his info.

What is the weak link on the trans? What can they take before they need to be beefed up?
