If you don't already have one, you might consider a custom MCC tune for the mini before shucking out big money for a trans. Not saying it'll fix your slipping but it certainly can't hurt.

looks like H&S overdrive would be the thing to get (is that better then MCC, or do I need MCC and then I could get overdrive?), I am going to rebuild the trans soon too.

Yes the od is the trans tune. MCC is custom engine tunes plus the trans tune.

Uses melted down uneptanium from Thor's hammer to build his transmissions... And engines, but shhhh no one knows that yet, lol.

Quote stolen from CottonDoc!! Haha
What's his prices on a built 68 ? And what's shipping cost down to the states ? Core charges ? Wanting to try to stick with a 68 vs all the other swaps they offer now. Idk if it's possible to make a 1000hp on a built 68 and it survive and be dependable. I don't want anything to do with the purple curse trans. Called fire punk but 11k for a 47RE isn't gonna cut it either. Don't think a revmax will live at that power range same as sun coast. So I know I'm limited on options but it would be nice to be able to keep a 68 if the commercial power train will hold it and live.

AFAIK Commercial Powerfrain won't sell just a trans. Must do the install too. He doesn't like others getting their hands in there... And I can understand why 😊

So they won't let anyone just put it in and do the learning process and that's it ? Well guess revmax is gonna get a lot more business then.

Yes, and Commercial Powertrain won't be wasting their time diagnosing, repairing, replacing things on Transmissions that were either installed improperly or broken in improperly.

It's a smart move from a small business perspective. And I am sure he gets a good amount of business due to his location.

I believe he spends an entire week per transmission basically from start to finish.

May see if he will without a warranty sold with it if he ships or cause if it does break it will be cheaper and fast for me to fix myself and the part vs shipping it back to them.

I used H&S OD and MCC on a stock trans. Now have a Revmax 550. Tried controlling it with MCC, couldn't be made to work. Now working with a tuner using EFI Live. Will report how it goes.

I had had the Revmax for about six months now, and it has been a pain. When I received it, it had a filter that allowed excessive converter drainback. This caused the truck to lurch and surge after putting it in gear. Revmax sent me the appropriate parts, but I had to pay to have them installed in my new transmission.

Revmax's tuning, which they initially forced me to buy from a tuner, was not useable. Truck had erratic converter behavior and ridiculously low shift points. Would lug, buck, stall, chatter...etc. Revmax is not interested in remedying the situation, and I am working with a tuner to try to get it right. Hopefully it can be made to work.

My point is not to criticize Revmax, but to point out that buying an aftermarket trans is not a plug-and-play upgrade. They will sell you the hardware, but you are on your own to make it work with your truck. Trans still makes a terrible grinding sound that rattles the whole truck when it upshifts prematurely and RPMs drop under 1k under partial throttle and has to be shifted manually around town. On the upside, the trans does shift very nicely--better than the tuned stock trans--in certain situations. On highway onramps, from say 50 to 80% throttle, the thing works great.

After all the headaches and money spent, the truck is worse to drive than it was with the stock trans. Wish I had kept the stock 68 with MCC. Would have been easier and cheaper to buy rebuilt stockers if mine failed than mess with this Revmax.
