Replacement Transmissions

I'm looking at replacing my transmission, I don't do a lot of pulling anymore but I don't want to be limited from pulling anything. What kind of after market tranys are y'all using and what do you like or dislike about them? All input is appreciated.

BTS or Suncoast are the best out there.
I would have no problems running either. Seems that BTS has a better warranty.

I personally run BTS but had a ford reman that was up to the task at 350-400hp for 2 years.BTS has over 60k miles on it now and is a year old.It isn't no slouch.Pulls drags tows the 10k+ GN.2 year unlimited mile warranty.

I put the 5 star convertor from ATS in mine about 3 weeks ago. I had a triple disc ATS, and I like this new one a lot better. ATS has been good to deal with also.

Bts

Everything I've read says BTS......

I emailed em a week or more back about maybe sending one downunder, because I'd heard they did so previously for someone.

No reply yet.....so I'm a little sus about the guys commitment to customer service...then again - maybe he's so busy he just hasn't got time to do his mail?.

If I was wanting warranty assistance/advice on the side of the road, I sure wouldn't want to be kept waiting a week or two for him to find time to get back to me..

Maybe it's just me...... I have a thing about folks don't answer their mail.
What else can't they find time to do?

All I asked was for a quote to ship one!
Best of luck with whatever you decide to do!

Cheers!
