The factory molded piston is prone to uneven apply which leads to excessive heat in the clutches and steels creating premature failure. The Mega Monster Transmission features: the latest technology in our industry with only the best internal components for increased strength, dependable performance and monster torque capacity. SunCoast has also redesigned the spring and recalibrated it for our specific needs. Contact us for more information or to schedule an appointment today! The tighter shift recovery essentially keeps the vehicle in higher averaged horsepower and torque numbers, while also adding torque multiplication. This new separator plate is very different from the factory, and it allows SunCoast to manipulate the oncoming and off-going clutch timing with pinpoint precision. After nearly a decade of experience we have found many ways to increase the longevity and performance of this transmission.
As with anything we see, we knew it was only a matter of time before we would see the limits being pushed with our new design. However, we already were aware of this potential failure and have been hard at work with the patent office yet again. The factory drum at 200 psi of line pressure netted us a 4479lbs of clamping load. This does not come equipped with a new Speedometer Gear. This is in large part to the fragile and thin.
SunCoast has designed these kits in house to exact specifications for many intents, including but not limited to towing, sled pulling, racing or having a vehicle to get from point A to point B. Don't be surprised if I don't text you back, like I said, I rarely use it. The clutches in this converter are carbon-graphitic for precise and accurate lock-up. The additional cost may be higher than installing a reman or rebuilt transmission--not to mention the extra downtime. Certain vehicle specific tail-housings may not be available with this unit. When comparing to the factory drums 4479 psi, we saw a dramatic improvement over the factory.
Valve body gaskets are also a common issue. SunCoast also the decided to make the apply piston larger increasing the size of the drum as well. Warranties for a used transmission is only 30 days, 60 days, 90 days or 6 months. It works incredibly well as a towing unit for hot-shot driving, 5th wheel motorhomes, and most anything else you can hook up to the back end. This kit is also capable of a mildly modified street performance machine.
While this is a dramatic improvement over the factory piece this did fall short of our goals. In testing we found that with the newly found pressure, we were still falling short. The factory pump is not capable of producing enough line pressure, and it somehow bleeds off in all forward gears. If you start driving line pressure even higher, you will see this issue with deflection become even more prevalent. These kits feature the same technology and parts that we use in our in house transmission builds. I am very thankful for Tom who has helped tremendously, and given everything that I needed to make sure that I will be enjoying my project truck in the near future. Here at SunCoast, we take a very scientific approach to how we calibrate these units.
The additional gears allowed Chrysler to add higher 1st-gear ratios and tighter shift recovery from one gear to the next. What kind of warranty coverage are you looking for? Conventional logic would tell us that we should just drive line pressure until we achieved the desired clamping force. Whether youÕre towing a camper or hauling dirt to a job site, this torque converter is designed to improved vehicle response and give you years of solid, reliable performance. With the larger drum we were able to also increase the size of the clutch. Chrysler also increased second gear to a 1.
The certified professionals with River City Transmissions can keep the pulse on your transmission to ensure it is always steady and healthy. The new billet clutch housing holds a physically taller clutch pack, allowing the overdrive apply clutch area to increase 16%. This new SunCoast designed separator plate is also made from a higher grade of aluminum to ensure flexing and deflection do not occur. We start with addressing the accumulator cover plate. SunCoast has also achieved a 54% increase in hydraulic apply area. This separator plate is custom laser cut to ensure precision, accuracy, and of course, consistency.
Every transmission is cold and hot tested before shipment. With very little power added, like custom tuning, you can experience a transmission failure due to burned up overdrive clutches. This proved to not only provided a sufficient amount of tension to keep the sprag from flipping, but held at the current power levels we were seeing at the time. Used transmissions, since there is no way to know how many miles are on them, may fail at any time. After nearly a decade of experience we have found many ways to increase the longevity and performance of this transmission. SunCoast works directly with these companies to design and manufacture proprietary exclusive SunCoast product lines, giving the end user uncompromised quality throughout the entire transmission. If more power than just a programmer is added, it can cause more damage than just compromising the clutches.
It is the single most important item in the transmission. After doing some quick math it became apparent that the pump would need to deliver in excess of 350psi, which was well in excess of the current pumps ability. Fast forward to 8 years later, and now this design has been copied and almost every retailer is selling their version of this design. You can send me a text to a cell phone I rarely use, I never answer it but I do return text messages. We knew from previous testing that more clamping force would be needed to ensure that we needed more, a good bit more. The issue with this factory unit is inherent to the design.
