You don't need to call Suncoast there are a bunch of vendors on here that are dealers. Put it in the price request section

the GMAX kits from Suncoast, the 6 speed conversion isn't worth the money unless you do a lot of highway driving

You should have Mike L build it -- you are not to far from So Cal and it will be done right! He will also tell you what you need- and not BS you.

dont waste money on stage V they are to much money. buy a kit, have a good builder build it and you will be good

1-800-868-0053 is the number to Suncoast in Fort Walton Beach,Florida.....
ask for John in sales...

BTW a stage 5 trans is a fully built one,it is not a kit like the rest.When I got my stage 5 all I had to do was bring them the core,and they loaded my new stage 5 in the back of the truck.5800 bucks later I was on my way home with the stage 5 and all the goodies.When you decide on a stage 5 you'll be asked whether you want billet shafts,deep pan etc..All of which affect the final price....It comes with everything but the 23 qts.[roughly 5 gallons,give or take] of oil to fill it

Mike l the man....

IMO a stage IV done by mike is better than stage V suncoast
Explain the reasoning behind that...No doubt Mike L. IS one of the best:rockin Does Mike do anything differently??Not trying to stir the pot,I'm just wondering why you say that?

All the great builders have something special they keep to themselves. When you have one of these builders build your trans you get a blue printed unit with everything set properly and all the tricks he knows. Same goes for one of their shipped units. When you buy a kit, you get all the good stuff the builders use. What you don't get is the know how and tricks. Will the unit work well without the tricks? Absolutely if assembled per instructions and you make sure there is nothing else failing in the trans while you're in there.
If you run real big power, the building procedure will change and I would suggest a professional do it.
