so now i've had a couple people tell i might not need to replace tranny. The problem occurs while shifting its like tranny kicks half into netrul then slams into the next gear, it doesn't slip while in gear only while shifting. so i've been told to try having the tranny flushed then new fluid and add lucas to it and put a racer x valve body in. anyone think this sounds right?

You could pursue the valve body and other mods you described, but if you're gonna add injectors and turbo then you may want to go ahead and get the transmission built before hand.

Depends on your budget.

Pay now or pay later.

Do you know where Cales tunes came from? We do....shame on you!



Welcome to the Major Leagues kid. Ever been to a Major League city like N.Y. or any city that actually has a Major League ballpark? Or even a city with a port that can unload big ocean liners instead of just 18 wheelers? Where do you think those 18 wheeler size storage boxes without wheels come from? Why can't BTS support any forum or charity....?

How long should a stock Ford Tranny be expected to last in a stock truck ? The convertor went in my 99 PSD at 77k. Is that premature ? Good thing it had a warranty, it was big bucks.
