So last night my transmission decided it was time to ef up. ive got an 07 awd with all the bolt ons and tune.

Help me out on this one.. i havent checked to see if there are any codes yet.the shift from 1-2 is good.. but the shift from 2-3 just slips like crazy and then if i give it even a little gas in 3rd and up is slips like noones business. I know nothing about these transmissions so Im simply asking what all could have gone wrong for these symptons. and am i just looking at a rebuild or being able to salvage this...

secondly..i need advice on built transmissions and pricing..im sure ill be doing a cam if im building the tranny.

thanks in advance

iv read that even on stock SS the trannys go bad so i dont think it was anything you did unless u let it drop into 2nd everytime and just take off i heard thats bad for the tranny. im sure its anywear from 3-4k for a good built tranny..

Maybe you tuner took out the torque management. I'm running double TQ Management and my completely stock trans handles the 521 HP/ 546 TQ at the wheels just fine.

Sounds like your 3-4 Clutch pack is done. You are going to need a full rebuild or new trans.

We are a FLT dealer and the Level 5 FLT would be $2,550 + Shipping.

You really need the stage 6 for the awd trucks

You don't need a Level 6. A Level 5 will work great for an AWD that is stock or has bolt ons. The Level 6 only offers a billet output shaft that the level 5 does not have and only needs consideration under extreme duty. Such as, Blown or nitrous applications. Even then a Level 6 is not required but merely preferred. In this situation the extra $500 would be a want vs. a needs/requirement.

Depends on a few things. Do you plan to tow? do you race the truck or plan to race the truck? If you need to tow the options are the I6 we offer ($375) or the PTB converter ($945) from Yank. If Towing is not a concern and you are looking for more overall performance a SS series converter ($725) would be in order.
