I have been contaplateing upgradeing my trans as its the last week link in my set up.
With my exsperance with FRI, We were provied a parts list of the phyisical parts that are diffrent between the big boy AMG trans and ours from a Mercedes contact.
I did a part by part list and there parts add up quick $$$
Any way Im leaning more towards Bill's trans, becouse He rocks, And I love his VB.
But I have heard that some High HP trans are only rebuilt stockers with better/or more cluches added.
Are input / output shafts / etc replaced in these HP Trans.. Any one know?
Im not trying to start anything, I know that there are a ton of fast guys out there running these HP trans and have not broken any, but will all my bad luck as of late brakeing High HP parts lately, I want to make sure my $$$ is getting the most strength it can.
Thanks for any input.

You know that's a valid question but unfortunately it will probably turn to crap. Mike, I would call them and go with your gut...
Personal Best: coming soon!!
Anyways, I'll give my input. I can't answer all the technical questions. I can only tell you about my experience. I bought a SHR transmission about a year ago. I've put over 10K miles on it so far. I probably have around 100 passes on it. I'm at the track a lot. It drives and shifts just like the day I put it in. Even the 3-4 shift is rock solid.
Right now, I'm spraying a 300 shot. I've made several 10 second passes and I've never had to pull it out and send it back for a new one.
Good luck in your decision making. You'll get a lot of positive feedback about both vendors. Like Jim said, call them both and decide.
