Well as far as hp goes you can expect to see 500 to 550 for a max effort EFI tune... That being said there are alot of different kits out there. I love my alligator kit so far. But I know ppe makes great products and also suncoast as well

Mike l who posted above, or big dipper are some well known names on here for transmissions. Alligator stage v seems to be the cheapest kit that actually has good parts. Ppe and suncoast are both good too for that power range.

I like mine the best. :D
:thumb

If i may speak for Mike real quick, i just wanted to throw this out that Mike recommends George Alexander (Big Dipper), Ben Tyler (BT Dieselworks), and Dallas (the builder at suncoast)

depending on location, i just figured id throw that out there.:drink

I believe brian (hondarider) had a little over 600 on his mike l stage III with his last truck. He never seemed to have any issues with it.

Im pretty sure dallas will only build the trannys with his own kit.

if i can help you with an already build tranny or a trans kit let me know bud

Are your kits comparable to alligators? I think a stage 3 is all I would need.

Heck why not Dustin, just shoot me a pm on a price on an already built stage 4 and a kit as well. Shipping to 33852 if it matters
