Default Aftermarket Trans Builder?

Kinda getting ready for when it goes...fluid is still nice and clean but it doesnt shift all that consistent and slips into 6th quite often (jumps up about 400-500rpm before getting into gear).
Im not looking to do anything crazy with this truck at all, just make it a reliable driver and tow pig. Dont plan to go any further than I am now with exhaust, derletes, and tunes. Is midwest diesel a good place to go for a trans? Looks like it would be in the 5k mark for the trans and converter. Any recommendations or people who have experience with other builders? Or just stick a Ford reman unit in it?

They are pretty much the most proven. Other options include Warren Diesel.

Have Midwest Or Warren do a stock + rebuild with better clutches (Raybestos GPZ) and if you need to update the converter, do the Ford HD one. The Suncoast and PI units are nice but very expensive and for basic dleets, not worth the cost. Otherwise it should be fine.

What about mpd's stage one trans? Looks like a solid option rated to 750 and less money then a suncost.

Not a fan of the fact that they use Red Alto clutches personally....never had good luck with those clutches, they tend not to hold up well. I know many others who have had issues as well.

Also.....MPD not so long ago used to talk about how stock 6R140s could take 1000+ rwhp...that's funny to me because now they offer the stage 1 6R140 options now rated for 750HP.

I have a full Suncoast 750 unit. Billet flex plate, billet converter, and all their other mods. It isn't the most comfortable daily trans but it will last for a very long time. Definitely puts power to the ground. I have stock fuel with an S363 and TSD tuning that put 585 to the wheels.
