Goldrush parts build list and advice?

I have a 1995 ram 2500 4x4 auto that i plan to sell soon and one i do that along with getting paid back by a friend of mine i should have a decent chunk of change to spend on parts..i want to get some feedback on what i will be looking at power wise, along with reliability of these parts and whether or not they will work well together.

1st is the trans...good ole 47re parts list:
Bd flex plate
Bd stage 4 build it kit
Suncoast 47re valve body (i'm still researching these because i know nothing about them, do need help on this subject)
Suncoast single disk torque converter
Suncoast billet input shaft.

now for the go fast and supporting parts:
Fass150
Quad w/adr V2 tuning
i was looking at the viper phatshaft 63/68/12 turbo but could go with a cheaper brand also
DAP 175HP 7x0.010 sticks...DAP has 2 different types, an aftermarket and performance type..not sure which to go with
arp headstuds
diamond eye exhaust 4" single, but i would really like to run 4" duals
custom CAI and intake horn and intercooler tubes (i know these aren't needed but also for looks)

i am looking into a manifold but have not made a decision on one yet.

the truck is a 2000 auto 2wd. i'm going to be lowering the truck and putting it on bags later. it is used as a daily driver and i drive calm unless someone cuts me off then i get angry and get on it. i am mostly wanting a reliable truck that i can enjoy and work at times, not often but i still tow some with it and plan to do more as i get the opportunities. really looking for some advice on the build i have planned and what i can look into problem wise from some of these add ons. i want to just enjoy the truck and keep it alive as long as i can. i know it is going to be expensive but i should have about $7000-$9000 after being paid back from my buddy and selling the 95 4x4 when the time comes.
sorry if i have posted a lot about this but i have many questions and need advice. i also have a lot going on with non performance parts with the truck. interior rebuild, custom dash cap, i'm doubling the fuel capacity, many visual things.
thank you in advance for input and advice.

Single disc converter will not work, it just wont hold.

I would also skip bd and suncoast as I bet you can save some change looking elsewhere, DPC etc.

so i will have to run a triple disk? i heard those have a harder lockup when shifting? also what is dpc? the stage 4 kit is $800. i have looked around and priced some things. the trans parts after core charge returns came out to about $3400. XDP does a price beat and i shopped around to find the cheapest prices on the parts i could.

you will absolutely need a triple disc.

Check out Dynamic trans or firepunk.

google dpc converter

i have looked, does firepunk offer a kit for the 47re? and their kits are rather expensive it seems like. and DPC converters has the triple disk for $1300 (lifetime warrenty), billet input for $700, flexplate for $175, and if i was to do the other shafts it would be another $725 each. these prices are rather close to what i had found from the other brands i listed previously.

Just my two bits, but I would ditch the Fass for a GDP. As long as you don't intend to install a fluidampr, the GDP will supply plenty of volume at acceptable pressure, and is (in the opinion of someone who troubleshoots electronics for a living) much more reliable. I'm not impressed with the posts I see of Fass pumps leaking into the motor.

i looked into the GDP system, and i can't make any since out of their site. what am i looking for under their fuel systems, i am rather new to what that list of products is offereing. i have been warned about the leaks from the fass system and wouldn't really know how to address them from the start other than just new seals?

fuel boss is mechanical pump that is belt driven, the fass is electric. both have been proven to be reliable, take your pick. for what its worth, i have a friend with a fass thats almost 10 years old, no issues ever. mine is 2 years old, no issues and holds pressure under WOT

i will most likely end up going with a fass and doing a bigline kit on it and new seals so hopefully it doesn't leak

My set is set at 22psi, theough stock filter.

Normal driving sits at 22, increase rpm...pressure creaps to 24 and stays under ALL loads.

The debate of electric vs. mechanical will go for ever.

The bigger issue with electric is the woes that AIRDOG had a few years back. They were in a deal with a crap motor supplier, but have since resolved the issues.

The customer service is where i would sway my choice...mynunderstanding from my researchnis this...

FASS, says send motor/pump to us, we return a unit...if the part is deamed bad, they reimburse you the price of the REPLACEMENT THAT YOU HAD TO BUY DURING THE PROCESS.

AIRDOG, does a swap without question theough local dealers

GDP...will answer emails/phone calls within minutes to assist and make things happen.

My choice would swing towards your easy of fix if ever needed. I travel the country and went with the unit that the least amount of recorded issues posted.
