transmission rebuild

I need my transmission rebuilt,any advice? A local shop said they could rebuild it stock for $1600 or stock with a billet torque converter for $2400. Is this fair ,any anything else I should do?

I don't think I can afford to ship a transmission to canada and back for a rebuild. What's the difference in an srt 10 48re rebuild and an diesel 48re? The local shop said he has rebuilt a lot of diesel 48 re's. The torque converter IS custom built by florida torque converter corp. In Cape coral fl.

You could check with Tony at JTS Venom. He has a guy who rebuilds transmissions and you would only have to ship to North Carolina.

Is your truck stock, or do you plan any mods? Ronnie went through several builds, with parts recommended by some very reputable US shops, and they blew up. Diesel's don't turn the rpm that we do for one. If Ronnie sees this thread he will fill you in on what works.

My truck is mostly stock ,maybe 30 hp over stock. I would like to run an 125 or 150 shot on it eventually.

26-2800 convertors are fun.

Shift-kits help as more line pressure is what is needed to keep the tranny alive.

Valve body work is semi-permanent so if you don't like it (say it's too harsh for your liking and your rear view mirror keeps snapping off of the windshield on a gear change), you are kinda-sorta stuck with it. Shift kits can be changed out, if needed.


If you are going to rebuild the transmission and you plan on future engine power increases, don't rebuild it with stock parts, that's kinda not worth doing.

Your 48RE (stock) is designed for 500-550 HP (maybe).
Stronger servos, clutch-packs, actuators, anchors, transducers, shift-kits and/or valve body mods, solenoids, drums, main-shafts and bands are available that will help keep it alive for a lot longer.

My 2 cents..
