545rfe alternative

Not to beat a dead horse but what?s everybody running for alternatives to the 545rfe?s running over 600 whp?3rd Trans just went south on me. Just read the t56 swap on here, sounds fun. Looking for a daily driver not 1/4.

All the info you need is right here!

I am pushing over 600whp now on 16psi boost on my stroker and it's holding remarkably well. It is also the only basic simple bolt it cheap way to go to hold power.

Awesome! I?ll read up on this tonight. 77 pages is going to take me a minute though. You can probably guess my next question. Is there someone on this forum that sells or rebuilds Transmissions as a full kit with all the parts needed to do the swap? I should probably start reading first then ask questions. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction though.

Welcome to HTC.

What part of the 545 went south? OD clutches?

Redtruck-va did it 2 years ago nobody paid it any mind until I did it early this year and now everyone is jumping on the band wagon. There is no kit per say for our third gens. You can buy a prebuilt trans from somewhere or rebuild it yourself. Sourcing parts is the easy part all the things needed the way I did it were from PATC. I built mine with the 700hp kit and all stock planetary sets (the weak ones lol) and it's holding so far so good for a little over 10k now with tons of abuse. Oh oh oh forgot to mention you can do a rolling 45mph wot run with it too and not burn the trans up!!!!!

Like Keith said I installed mine over two and half years ago and beat on it daily. I think I have close to 30k on it now. Dropped the pan a couple weeks ago to install a manual vb and the pan and magnet were clean. Its the way to go in my book.
