So I have been looking into transmissions for my 5.9 travco swap. Only info I recieved was using a 518 would be a good trans to use. My question is should I invest in a built one for a lot of money that will surely do the job or is there a better cheaper way. can I purchase all the parts that are in this so called built transmission and put it together myself? Anyone have any advice
Thanks

i had mine built, and unless your throwing tons of HP at it, leave it stock.... get the best torque converter money can buy, thats the big weakspot of the 518 is no lockup...
