Knowing that the stock E4OD and Torque Converter are not adequate for a new 408 Stroker with high torque, I have resigned to the fact that it will rapidly fail at some point similar to the rapid destruction of my 8.8 Pinion Gear.
To be pro-active, I have ordered a custom built Level 10 PTS Performance Transmission
w/custom built Torque Converter. Level 10 owner Pat Barrett personally consulted on the design.
The Level 10 PTS Bulletproof E4OD Transmission
is being custom built from scratch, computer graphed and designed specifically for my engine specs and dyno tune. It will have high-energy performance clutches & bands, modified high output Pump, modified shift Solenoid and custom valve body modifications.
The Level 10 PTS Billet Torque Converter
is also being custom built in-house for my application with a custom pump, stator and turbine. It will have billet internals combined with an anti balloon plate and a high-performance lock-up clutch. It was recommended to tighten up the stall speed a bit, but at this point I am not sure what was exactly settled on.
The new custom E4OD will be installed alongside the existing Mag-Hytec Transmission Pan (16 + 7.5 quarts), B&M Racing 29,200 BTU Transmission Oil Cooler, Perma-Cool Remote Transmission Oil Filter Mount, Transmission/Differential Temperature Gauges and will run exclusively with Amsoil Synthetic ATF.
