What slip in band is the best to go with. Ive found a few different ones with a few different materials.

I believe Borg Warner and red clutches make a good slip in band.

Any of them will work. You will have to pull the trans at some point and put in a real band. A slip in band is going to eventually snap from the pressure. You could try a lower ratio lever to help your band live longer. Might affect your 2-3 shift.

Actually, the slip in bands are generally built heavier than the BW OE units. I have better luck with the slip in bands than anything. The red lined bands on a mostyl solid band is pretty beefy.

Ok i ordered a red eagle slip in from CTpowertrain.

Link if anyone is interested

Also got a new vb electronics harness as i must have tweaked the connector and cracked it. I have some valvoline atf+4 on the way to make sure i have enough for the refill. Should have it back up and running this weekend. These 80+ hour work weeks got me beat.

You can make a slip-in out of any band, really. I've made several over the years out of the Raybestos Pro Series bands. You just have to grind down one anchor, and then very carefully reweld it (without overheating the friction material in the process). The only real issue is to make sure to run the modified end of the band on the ANCHOR side, so you don't have any issues with the strut falling off.

Got it in and back up and running. Didnt have 1st gear when i first test drove it. But i guess it was in limp mode because there was a dozen or so trans codes in the computer. I had turned the key to the on position with the nss and 8pin connector disconnected. I readjusted both bands while i was in there and everything seems to be shifting fine. We will be pulling the trailer in two weeks. We will see how it does.

For what its worth. I used a cooper 12guage wire to fish the band around the drum. It helped out tremendously. I also replaced the vb harness as i had cracked the tab on my previous work and figured i would replace it while i had it apart again.

Thanks for all the help yall. I now know way more about automatics than i ever wanted. Haha
