Default BTS down for the count

Well she took a dump today. Lost all forward gears on my dads excursion. Brian said ship it on back. Three week predicted turn around.

Best warranty in the business, nobody else compares!

Back in the day when I had the good ole 7.3 I had a bts and the converter failed after years and many miles. Talked to Bryan and after a few trouble shooting questions, he had me new one in a couple of days. I cant say enough about the great customer service BTS has.

The turnaround. I'm curious if he's saying they will be over, or if they quoted over. Lol

O so this is the 2nd one? My bts was ordained in 99 and at that time - no billet parts. It was all cryo tx and still going now! I’m lucky I suppose.

It’s just an excursion on 35s driven by a 62 yr old. Never hauls anything. No idea why it failed. Never got hot etc

Yeah, that sounds pretty unusual.. I'm sure he's interested in getting it back.

It's been at Bryans for at least 3 weeks. Been calling every other day looking for details. Keep getting the run around from Tina. Apparently he's sick or something which is understandable but she can't give an eta of when he'll be back in. About ready to have them ship it back and fix it local. The warranty is great and all but not when it's been close to a month and the thing hasn't even been opened up yet.

Bts is known to be busy. You’ll get yours transmission- just not in a timely matter.

Total BS except for the part of being sick. If there was any customer service, the office would have called you and gave you an update.

I would've expected some updates after the 2 weeks. I would gave them an option....if can't fix it then ship it back.

And what do you consider a timely matter?

After 3 weeks of trying to get ahold of Brian, I'm glad BTS didn't return any of my calls because I found out that The Punisher aka Paul Delpo is about 1.5 hours away from me. I have his trans in my truck and over 50k miles, towing 22k later, it acts the same way as the day I installed it.

No, I’m not kidding. Give them space. Calling them every other day isn’t going to make things go any faster. Especially when you know (well, you should know) his time frame is loose and can’t be counted on.

Is it the best? No, I admit that. We all know BTS is slipping as far as time frame wise that’s why I say leave him alone. His transmissions is tops, I can attest to that b/c I own one.

Glad you went with whomever. The OP didn’t have a choice but bts since it’s a warranty procedure. I would always say go with bts... if you’re willing to wait...! The other two options would be dieselsite and Sam wyse. Those two will get you a transmission in week or two weeks time. Though SW is a few weeks behind now. Dieselsite however, is always ready at the helm (I’m an hr from them).

Was there ever any issues with twisted diesel trans? I remember hearing a lot of good about them and don’t remember hearing bad, they just kinda fell off the map.

I had mine built by a guy who is a retired master tech. At this point I’m over the power limits of it but I’ll see how long it holds. I could billet the entire thing through this guy if I want to but I didn’t have the money or reason to do that at the time. Unfortunately it was only a 1 year warranty for me. It’s all going to be the same except for the name and warranty. The same Name brand billet parts are still going to be the same name brand billet parts no matter who puts them in the case.

As of right now, only tcs actually makes the billet items and the rest are just “rebranded”? I could be wrong. All billets plus hard parts (updated) is around 5,500. Dieselsite will do a full billet for 6,500. JW is also same price.

Brian is a great transmission builder. Back in the day when the 4R100 was new, he was one of the first ones to learn what it took to make one live at fun power levels. However, the 4R100 is now almost twenty years old, the trans that went into the OBS trucks is even older. Lots and lots of good transmission builders out there have learned all of the secrets that were previously known to just a few.

Brian has had some health issues and has been out the past couple of weeks. Hes working on catching back up. Honestly, he should still be at home, and not at work, but hes a work-aholic and doesnt stop. Ive known Brian since before we even had a shop, and hes been the most stand up, helpful, and insightful person ive met in this industry, 13 years later. He has warrantied things for us he had NO business warrantying. Sure it sucks that your trans is down a few weeks due to brian being out. But, can any of us complain about getting a FREE repair on a transmission in a truck that makes twice (or more) power than it does stock? There is not a trans builder in the country that stands behind their products the way Brian does.

So honestly, its pretty irritating to see some guys on here get upset about it. For someone who bends over backwards to SO many people, its depressing to see guys have zero compassion in return.

And lastly, Arisely, you must be slipping and not keeping up with the diesel world these days. Sure others have made progress and have a much greater understanding of the 4r, but you think Brian rested and isnt still pressing forward? 4r100s are going in trucks that make 2-3x more power than a 7.3 has ever dreamed of, and theyre holding up. We went an entire SEASON last year on the same trans and converter at 1600+ hp, and ran at UCC and so far this season at 2200+ hp. The parts and things Brian is doing with the 4r are on a whole new level, and there are SO many things coming down the pipe that guys havent thought about. Different shafts, valve bodies, cryo processes, converter technology, trans brakes, and a few other even more impressive things that im not going to mention.

Sorry for the rant, but i hate to see someone that the entire industry has learned from, looks up to, and one of the most helpful people Ive met get bashed on because someone is feeling selfish. Put yourself in his shoes for a minute. How would you like not feeling well, having other things 10x more important than trucks on your mind, pushing your body to get well so you can go back to work to HELP people, while someone is throwing a pitty party on the internet telling guys how its not good enough?

haha ill grab my firesuit out of the race trailer. Heck i havent posted here in 4 years and its obviously a new crowd. Its not my style to post stuff like that, but some of the things i read really struct a nerve, just knowing Brian personally and knowing how he is, it bugs me to see him get bashed on for something out of his control which hes trying his best to get over. And i totally understand their frustration and i know the lack of communication is annoying, especially these days when we take for granted how easy it is to communicate with eachother. Just hate to see someone catching flack that deserves it less than anyone in the diesel world.

+1 Chris. Spot on. I was surprised by some of the comments.

Brian has a reputation as one of the best, if not the best E4OD/4R100 builder in the business, because he builds great transmissions and has an unbeatable warranty. But because they're busy, they get blasted for poor customer service? Unbelievable. I would understand the frustration if dealing with some mom and pop shop, but with a nationally known reputable builder, I think it's fair to expect a lead time, especially if Brian is dealing with health issues.

Complainers should shop around til some no-name shop answers their call on the first ring because they aren't busy, spend thousands at said shop without a reputation, to buy a product with unknown durability - not to mention not knowing how said shop will or won't stand behind that product.

Sucks for the OP. Sounds like he really needs that truck on the road instead of sitting for 6+ weeks when he was told around 3 weeks. I would be calling and asking for the transmission back so I could have a core for a local guy or reman Ford unit. Sometimes a free repair that takes 6 weeks hurts more than just paying locally for a 3 day turn around.

This has nothing to do with his trans building capabilities or his R&D. This is about his customer service which plain sucks. If he has health issues and going to be out for a while, his office staff should call all his customers that are waiting for their transmissions for an update; not given a round around.

I'd put one of Chris Garrett's 4R100/E4OD transmissions (and Warranty) up against anybody's in the country. He's located in northern Georgia

https://www.facebook.com/A1-Transmis...4391162575380/

All of his work (machining & etc)and assembly is done in house,.....by Chris himself,....Not some flunky that he pays 12 bucks an hour. To my knowledge,....he's the only guy in the country that built a Trans-Brake for a 4R100,...that actually works like it should.

Him, as well as many of his customers race their trucks and push them to the limit,.....which is what he wants,.....so he can make adjustments & upgrades to his build spec and in turn, design one of the best transmissions that you can get.

Give our best to Brian, we wish him better health and rest.

This whole thread is a nightmare and just reminds me of the ****ing trash Tony had to deal with on the forum after his situation.

I'm sorry to see his lead time increase due to his situation and I'm sorry some people aren't more understanding about it.

A week is understandable, two weeks eh..but over a month at this . I understand life gets in the way, just be up front about it when I call.

The reason we paid the money we did for the trans initially is so we wouldn't have these issues. It's an excursion that's daily driven by a 63 yr old guy. He's not out racing and hauling 20k pounds.

I'm glad he's back in the shop and wish him the best catching back up. That's the issue with providing a specialized service that you're the only one capable of.

Oh, I think I see. The concern was not getting any communication as to the hold (regardless of reason I assume) ?

That... that is a bummer. I hope that is not the case for everyone.

Only thing I’ve been told every time I’ve called in the last six weeks “I’ll talk to Brian and call back”. Builds a dam good transmission but if it takes 2 months for a warranty claim....

What most people don't understand is that they are not the only customer. Chit happens that cant be corrected. It definitely does suck but what else can you expect from a shop that has thousands of customers with who knows how many transmissions sitting on the floor waiting in line. I watched the man pull out my transmission and put a new converter and flex plate in it since the old one had a pin hole in the weld and put it back in and was topping off the fluid in 50 minutes. That was all done after i pulled into his shop at 8pm after driving down there from work in iowa.. also didnt charge me a dime for the new flex plate.

The guy is straight up busy. And a hell of a guy. Yes many have had issues over the years with turn around times but when someone is that busy and something happens then it sets them back that much farther. If a guy is constantly on the phone with customers then how can they expect any work to get done? At the time i was down to his shop, brian was building or rebuilding one transmission a day. So if he gave a 3 week turn around and was still at the same rate of one a day then do that math. Thats how many people where ahead of you. All calling and waiting to hear what the problem was. Not including new customers or old customers calling with questions.


I do get it about being up front and just saying the dude has health issues and your trans wont be done for a couple extra weeks. Still sucks butnat least its nkt a run around then..

Would love to. How much?

And before you take this the wrong way, this is not a knock at all against your buddy. Sounds like an extremely talented and hard working guy whos in the process of making a HECK of a product and reputation for himself. Im sure hell have a LOT of success over the years. Hopefully if an unexpected and sudden illness occurs to him 20 years from now, he wont have to see a couple guys selfishly blast him on the internet because theyre inconvenienced by a few weeks waiting on a free repair on a performance product.

But, at the same time, Im extremely confident in the 4r Brian has built and had in multiple race trucks for the past few seasons. We are still running the same trans we ran on the dyno at UCC (2238hp), as well as the sled pulling portion of UCC, and our 5.4 passes at the Tulsa NHRDA race earlier this year. Will be interesting to see how many passes it will hold up to at 2200hp and 6100lbs. So, if youre up for a wager, id love to play!

Hopefully you see this post in a light hearted way, as its NOT intended negatively towards your friend who builds transmissions at all.

No offense taken,.....

Not knocking BTS in any way,....

BUT,..
It just seems that SO MANY people think that Brian (BTS) is the only guy in the business that can build an E4OD/4R-100 to stand up to big power,....and back it up with a warranty. This is simply not the case these days.

Chris Garrett is one of the most upstanding guys in the business. Like I said before,.....I'd put his work up against anybody's,.....including Brian's.

Just saying,....



FWIW,....
I have a Gas truck that I Drag-Race (my Diesel is my tow-rig),....and back in 2016,... I was running two different Points series races at the same time (one weekend apart) Chris' expertise in transmissions helped me to take 1st place in both of those. Even though mid season,....I had a failure. He understood my situation and that my time was very limited between events. Got it fixed in time,....and I was able to keep racing,.......and most importantly,... Winning.

That type of customer service,....makes all the difference in the world to me.

Do you use a 4r100 in your drag truck? How many 4r100s does your buddy have behind motors that make quadruple digit horse power and 2 to 3 times the torque? Not knocking him. Just curious as i have never heard of him.

I have no idea how many he has built,......as in my mind, that's not what's important. I'm mainly concerned with what he can do for "me" and the quality over quantity. I do know that he gets a LOT of business. He use to do all kinds of automotive repairs,....BUT,... his transmission business is booming so much, that trans stuff is all he does now.

I'm sure Brian @ BTS was an unknown several years ago as well.

I hadn't heard of him either,....until a few years ago when a friend of mine recommended him. I've been to his shop several times,.....and Now,.......I won't go anywhere else.



FWIW,...I didn't mention his name as some form of a dick measuring contest and/or how may Hoes he may have banged. I just want people to know they have options these days.

Bottom line,......the guy knows his stuff,...is reasonably priced,....and backs up his work.

how much hp and tq does your car make?

Why wouldnt it be important? That is very important. If a guy can make something hold at 4 digit power/torque numbers then they have a good idea what it takes to make a 4r100 hold...


It has to do with wanting to know that there are more options out there and that is a dickish way to answer someone when they are curious to know who he is and what he is capable of doing. Ya know, kinda like the way bts got known. By word or mouth. But if you cant back it up and instead reply with a comment that has nothing to do with what i asked. More like beating around the bush because you really dont know but that is fine. Ill move on without passing the word of another possible trans builder for the powerstroke platforms..

Thread went off topic. Guys pays good amount for the best transmission that is behind a mostly stock 7.3 and it failed. Now it's taking 6+ weeks to get warrantied and isn't getting the answer he needs. If Brian is so busy as mentioned a few post back he should hire some help.

Here's a pic,....for your viewing pleasure,...



I'm not going to get into exact specifics,....BUT,....as far as HP/TQ are concerned,....both are in the 4 digits. Do I have the fastest thing out there,....NO,...I sure don't,.....BUT,......It is in the top 10% of the quickest Full-Size trucks in the country.

Chris Garrett has SEVERAL customers making BIG Horsepower & Torque #'s. Exactly how many,..... I don't know. I'm not his accountant, so I don't have access to that information.

I did not intend to come off rude, or overbearing. If you took it that way, I do apologize.

The main reason I responded,....is to let guys know,....If they need a good Transmission built, and they want another option,...this guy,....

If fact,.......every single part on this truck is Ford. No GM or Mopar parts parts at all.

The Paint is actually a "Dodge" color,.....BUT,... I don't think that really matters.

Still 800 bucks and close to 3 or so months of time. Thing shouldn’t have let go in the first place in my opinion. Glad it’s back

You got it back. Thats good but sucks it took so long and the bearing went out but its a mechanical device and sometimes they break. My transmission broke 7/24. Had it towed to the shop the next day and it was ready on 8/8. Guy was on vacation between those dates as well. He told me that up front. Splines in the od gears let go on mine. Mine was almost 7 years old and had 220k miles.

I'd say prob about 2 years or a smidge less since it went back the first time.

How long ago did you buy the trans? Not sent back and returned. The warranty doesnt start over. Its from the date of purchase.
