That's what grabbed my attention... I thought I recognized the picture and suspected that someone here had been the guinea pig to get their tranny built... Oh, well... Guess it's back to the emails and local shop hopping... I have an awesome old school transmission guy set to do my shift kit, so I guess I will ask him if he will be able to tear it down and rebuild it to be bullet proof... And I'll also get in touch with L-10...yeah or take it to a good tranny specialist hey Chris why do they still have a picture of ur truck?
Beats me.. not like they cut me a deal.. spent over 6k there.. still haven't received rbs Titan torque converter that they lost and refuse to replace.. how you lose a 55lb torque converter is beyond meyeah or take it to a good tranny specialist hey Chris why do they still have a picture of ur truck?
From what Jared told me he said unless they are running boost and willing to drive to their protuners or Uprev facility you will not be able to get this done.. it is very tricky getting it just right and need you truck there in person to do it..Toomny would be the authority, but my understanding is that "bullet proof" has a lot to do with the Uprev line pressure software.
Boost is very addictive.. at first I thought 4-5lbs would be fine.. lol that lasted maybe 2 months and I'm running 8 now.. still want more but I'm afraid to get 12 Psi its gonna cost me another 15-20k for a built motor and Trans swap.. so I think this is most likely the end of the road for me..Closest authorized Up Rev "Tuner" is in San Jose, but from their site, looks like they specialize in cars... However, So Cal has a few and I recall there was a Dyno Meet at one of them in the past years... now, I'm thinking this "boost" idea is gonna really cost me as well... sheesh... I can just here the wife now... :rofl:
I figure the OEM tranny w/ Transgo upgrade will be sufficient to handle my future plan to install JWT cams but concerned about it holding up once I throw a monstrous wet NOS into the mix... the good thing is that it might hold up well if used sparingly on tracks, but I want to be able to use it while in the desert or sand drags... I am going to try and get in on the annual Avenal Sand Drags this year to "test" how my T will do as it is prior to cams, then later w/ NOS boost too...My plan is to have a local tranny buddy handle the IPT bullet-proof rebuild for me, and I'll be sending off my TC and VB for reworking. I only want to do this once, so I'm waiting until the cams are in so the TC can be matched accordingly.
Still a heck of a lot cheaper than buying the fully rebuilt one from them.
We need a step by step how to and a youtube video when that happens. I saw a rebuild book on somebody's web site, either Level10 or IPT.My plan is to have a local tranny buddy handle the IPT bullet-proof rebuild for me
it's those darn touchy Flux Capacitors that need to be properly calibrated that worries me... I think if I were to launch a DIY tranny re-build from a book or video, I would go get a take-off from the Salvage Yard so I can still keep my functional one intact... I love to turn wrenches but hate little moving parts... it's like my wife getting on me about going through a watch a year... she asks why I just don't get my watch repaired, and I tell her, it's cheaper for me to buy a new one for $20 from Wally Mart rather than $50 to repair the old one... :rofl:We need a step by step how to and a youtube video when that happens.

I rebuilt an Allison auto in a big truck from a book and VHS tape 20 years ago. I dunno if you need electron microscopes and particle accelerators to work on the new ones or not.
