well i switched to the suncoast but dont take it to mean that bd trannys wont hold.the problem i had was in the install and getting it setup 100 percent bugg free.i beat the crap out of the bd tranny and it never slipped.the deal with either the bd or the suncoast tranny is haveing someone install it that knows what they are doing.i had a mechanic buddy install mine and we called bd and they told us what to do and how it should feel .problem was we all wernt understanding each other and under or over adjustments were made in error.its a pain to keep taking the tranny pan off trying to reset the pressure ect.....i do like the sun coast very much truck acts like it is 100 percent stock,but for those that are close to a bd install center the bd tranny may be worth taking a look at......jess

Truck is back home with it's new tranny mods. I have been told to put 300 miles on it using my different power settings. Shifts seem to be getting crisper. <font color="red">NO MORE SLIP</font>
. King I have a question did your tranny temp increase with the transmission change? Could the fluid increase the temp?
Time for the extreme program

Suncoast goes in Monday. Should help on the track and pulling. Tranny is slipping pretty bad right now, with the monster boxes on.
Will be leaving tomorrow and won't be back to report till Wednesday, if i'm not locked up with BUBBA that is. Later Jeremy

Have an offer for a kit from TTS, which supposedly is the same kit that Suncoast is using, TransGo parts. That may be the way I go. I have installed a ATS III in Mike Tomacs truck and we got the bugs out of it, works good now, nice and firm when you want it, cant tell its there when yo dont..


If I install the TTS kit, I will document everything for an article/post here on DP for all to see

Diesel Power - " What is the deal with the ATS controller? sounds like a cool gizmo but how do the others get by without? "

Maybe they don't ???

The "bugs" Eric is refering to with the ATS was a tiny spring we left out of a trim cylinoid (sp?) that caused a harsh shift into reverse. Pulled the pan and put the spring back in and the shift into reverse is smooth as silk. Otherwise there was just a few quirky shifts after clearing the Allison's brain and putting it into fast learn mode so it could learn the shift pressures again.

I dont know what that ATS controller"controls" But it sounds to me like the LED shift mechanism on Allison World Class Trannys, where you can push a button and shift/downshift/or hold the same gear..kinda like a tiptronic....but not, on Internationals...(I call em 13 letter shizit spreaders) on the shift stalk theres buttons for each gear..you hit the button as you want em' or not....Bill
