More recs please.

Where are the diesel dynos at?

How about shops that do custom stuff? I'm dreaming about an 04.5-07 motor/trans in my '92. If I get deployed, it's going to happen...

We've recently had some work done at 5R in Golden. I don't know if they do that sort of thing, but they might. We were real happy with them.

Stay away from ATS

Unless u want problems [duhhh]

1 guy went through 5 trannys:

"I am having some SERIOUS problems with ATS. Has anyone else had the same issues that I have had. Keep in mind this happened with an 2006 2WD 48re no mods!

Trans 1. TC went out metal in pan(chunks)
Trans 2. Valve body replacement and washers in the tail shaft metal in pan
Trans 3. Loose shifting and lots of metal chunks in the pan
Trans 4. Metal in pan, lots of out of pocket shop visits and TC went out
Trans 5. Recieved trans 5 with bad sensors installed had to replace them as well as the sensor in the tail shaft and then broke a 2 piece pressed billet input shaft.(non modded truck)...

Is this all normal for ATS???

Is it normal to call ATS and never get a response back???

Is it normal to get stuck with the bill at a shop they tell you to visit and tell you they will pay for it?

They have a great warranty but is that because they build a sub par trans and they know you will use the warranty?

I am putting my full story together along with the pictures of the metal in my pan and the different stuff that I had to deal with while being involved with ATS. I will need to go through at least 20 or 30 emails to see how many of them were unanswered as well as my phone call logs. I spent 6000 bucks to put an ATS tranny in my truck and as you can see from above it did not work out so great. I am not trying to bash anyone I am simply telling all of you to the best of my ability what I have been through in the last 32 months. I put over 130000 miles on my stock trans...How come I never got more than 25000 out of an ATS? Is this normal??? Please let me know what you all think. Let me know if it were you, what you folks would be doing in my shoes. I tried speaking with Clint Cannon the owner of ATS, but he soon started ignoring my emails. I have tried everything in my power to work out my situation with ATS but have'nt anywhere else to go. I had to eventually go to another builder whom I will keep under my hat so as to not think I am "plugging them" for this post..This was done because I submitted a phone call broke down on the side of the road and did not recieve one ounce of help in what I should do(they were ignoring my issue) for 4 days only after they were aware I was having another builder fix it... Any input would be great of any of the forum members dealings with ATS that have turned out this way. I hope I am in this boat alone but I am sure I got some company..

Thanks To All and stay tuned there will be a large thread with detailed descriptions and pictures coming soon of what I have been through in the last 32 months.
