Your transmission was only designed to handle the torque and horsepower the stock engine delivers, and in the case of some Dodge models, even the stock torque can present a challenge. So when you start adding power modules, turbo upgrades and other bolt-ons, it’s only a matter of time before the transmission wears out and eventually fails.
BD transmissions are built specifically to handle the high torque loads of diesel engines at BD's state-of-the-art transmission facility. They reprogram the valve body for higher line pressure, and add heavy-duty clutches with up to 25% more material than stock. The stock thrust washers, which disintegrate and leave metal filings in your transmission, are replaced with roller Torrington bearings.
Inside each transmission is a NEW DESIGN valve body that achieves up to 80% higher clutch apply pressures over the stock unit and up to 50% over the competitors with the increase starting at much lower engine rpm’s and at lighter throttle pedal position movement. Light throttle shift firmness is also maintained at these higher apply pressures.
Our transmission packages also include a BD rigid aluminum heavy duty transmission pans which adds extra oil capacity and reduces case flex, plus, includes a BD auxiliary full flow filter kit for extra protection.
Each transmission is dyno-tested to make sure it functions properly in all gears before it is shipped to you in one of our containers.
Other options to consider when replacing your transmission are to mate the BD transmission with one of our Torque Converters and Flex Plates for added performance and strength. Call for details—we’ll be happy to answer your transmission questions.
NEW WARRANTY: 36-month / 150,000 mile limited warranty on non competitive/racing/sled-pulling applications.
CORE CHARGES – PLEASE READ
An upfront core charge is required. Once your core transmission is received and processed by BD, we will promptly issue credit back to you. Please contact us if you have any questions.
SHIPPING POLICY – PLEASE READ
Due to the size and weight of transmissions, they cannot be shipped through traditional couriers, such as UPS, FedEx, USPS, etc. and MUST be shipped via truck freight. For this reason, we cannot offer free shipping on transmissions. However, we do offer a service for each of our BD transmission sales that involves us coordinating the shipment of your core transmission back to BD, taking out the guess work for you. So how it works is we charge an upfront flat rate charge at the time of sale for shipping BOTH ways. We have also broken down the shipping charges as to whether we are shipping to a commercial or residential address. It is drastically less expensive to ship to and from a commercial address, so we recommend having it shipped as such. The commercial address does NOT need to be a service shop, it can be nearly any commercial address to take advantage of the cost savings. Please choose from the drop down menu as to what type of address the transmission will be shipping to and from. Finally, once your core transmission is ready to be picked up, you just need to give us a call with your original order number and the core tag on the transmission, and we’ll take care of the rest. As always, if you have any questions, give us a call or send us an e-mail.
NOTE: Torque converter is not included with this transmission package. Please see the Related Products section below for options.
