    I might miss a thread, But here is my concern I am a kind of guy that get attached to his truck and toy specially if this truck is upgradable. And the majority of the major stuff are on the truck already. So I am not willing to sell this truck any time soon. And I was wondering if any Gen 2 owner have upgraded or rebuilt the Gen 2 trans I would defiantly want to get any info regarding this subject. Because I do have this idea of upgrading my trans soon.

    the clutch upgrade that raybestos makes for the mustangs also works on the raptor trans. Don't have much more to offer than that, unfortunately.

    Yes true this is what I got also form the research and found 2 companies upgrading the mustang transmission.
    But I have never seen this done to a Raptor,And I was hoping to get any info I can on the transmission upgrade.

    I have my younger cousin truck acting so weird after the engine was replaced by the dealer and so far it really down shits very hard and bangs while shifting , the truck went to the dealer couple of time without resolving the issue the only thing the dealer did was to flush the pcm and tcm. We lost hope and had to take the truck to a performance shop that advised us initially that the tourq converter was done and needs to be replaced.

    Any options for a comprehensive swap as opposed to upgrading internals?

    Might cost more but less likely to give you issues.

    I am still looking for other options as for a swap I have no idea but I would not give my 10 speed for any other trans I kind love it and would defiantly like to beef it up.

    I also only found raybestos, they state improved for higher hp and strain applications, but don't really specify torque
    Or other specs

    the raybestos clutches and a beefier torque convertor has been holding quite a few 850-1250hp drag cars.

    not a ton of trans options for the EB bolt pattern.

    With all these modded raptors transmissions seem to be holding up well. It’s TQ not HP that destroys transmissions. I’m sure someone will come our with an upgrade.
