From street and towing to full race, BD builds them best! 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 our state-of-the-art transmission facility. We 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 revised 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

How much torque and horsepower can this transmission handle .?
That transmission shouldn't have an issue holding 450-500 rwhp and 1000 tq. It is held back by the OEM input shaft. Of course there are many limiting factors that could lower that number, towing heavy weight, how the truck is used etc.
What are the conditions of warranty? Does this have to be installed by an accredited shop or can I do it myself (I've swapped engines, trans, and transfers so am more than capable).?
The warranty does not require to be installed at a facility no, however to cover the R&R of a trans issue it needs to be installed at a authorized BD installer.
Q What are the conditions of warranty? Does this have to be installed by an accredited shop or can I do it myself??
The trans will be warrantied if installed by yourself, however to cover the R&R if there is a issue. It would need to be installed at a BD install facility.
Dose it come with a converter? And what converter is recommended for 500hp I use the truck as a daily driver?
It does not, please see related products.
I have a 2004 ram 3500 2wd 5.9 ""C"" with BD trans # 1064234f, & 1070217x conv. Presently failing with no LO gear. What trans upgrades do you recommend? KIT? VALVE BODY ?????
I would recommend calling BD. If the transmission is failing more then likely it is going to need to be rebuilt.-Sands
