Revmax transmission build

I got all my parts in today from Revmax, they cut and cleaned my Torque converter and built me a new Valvebody with second gear lock up. This time everything is getting a higher clutch count to hold any extra power I can throw at it. They told me this thing will deffinetly hold 750hp+! I'm going to be drag racing, sled pulling and what ever else I can do put it through!

Here's what was waiting for me when I got home!


New stage 5 triple disk


New valve body with second gear lock up and increased line pressure!


Seal kit from Revmax


Billet piston and servo cover

More billet pistons and servo


Direct drive clutches and billet piston to increase clutch count


OD brake with reaction plate and increased clutch count




I'm excited to get started ! Maybe tomorrow! Thanks Revmax

I just ordered through revmax this morning for my rebuild! Trans will be 750hp stable, minus i chose i single disk tc due to funds =( but im still safe for what i will be running!
stage 3 single disk torque converter-$400
complete rebuild kit-$499
supercoolawesome valve body-$349
billet 2nd gear servo, billet strut accumulator housing-$168
shipping-$nottomuch.
totaled out to $1525.
the capability to run hard, long, and fast, go home and sleep like a baby after warm milk with no worries of tranny failure, priceless.

So they are squeezing 7 in both direct and OD brake?

Yes they are able to do that by changing to a billet piston in the direct and a thinner reaction plate in the OD brake, using normal thickness or just a little thinner steels! But not thin enough everything gets warped!

DTT uses a billet piston and a machined reaction plate as well, but only goes with 5 in direct and 6 in OD brake. i am surprised they put that many in each pack. OD brake would be tough to get 7 in I would think.

Guess everyone builds them different...

Good luck with your build

Well I got some done today,

Super second servo


Then I nicked the seal on the low reverse servo putting it in, dont ask! I was trying to put it in upside down!



New billet direct drive piston installed!



Clutches soaked and stacked! I got 6 clutches in with .097 clearances



Front clutch assembled with 5 clutches with .025 clearances



OD unit assembled with 10 OD clutches, and 7 OD brake clutches with about .100 clearance



That's all the farther I got till I get the lip seal for the servo and the right apply lever, I have a 5.0 and a 3.8 and I'm not sure which one to use with the valve body.
