I'm just a peon here, but I put mine back together with one of the GPZ "pro series" setups with 6 frictions and .098" steels. I went this route because I'm cheap (sorry Mike ) and I got the plates machined for very cheap. I had under $200 in my c3 pack.

The GPZ friction plates did have splines removed to aid in oiling the inner friction surface, but I don't see how it helps very much without modifying the piston and apply plate?

You could buy that trans that Toner is selling and call it a day....

There is no just cheap way to get around upgrades on these trucks. Your customer needs to understand that.

Let's see how much you know.
Nobody said it was a "cheap ass way"
That's the problem with forums all the big wigs walk around with there nose up. The guy needs good info not to be bashed for wanting to save a little. I am glad I'm in a small town and have a great customer base. I have trans out there with 100k miles on them working great and people love them. I garrentee you don't need 5 grand to build a good unit other then to pad your pocket.
I've been though the ups and downs with thin steels and drum issues... Learned a lot from the c3s oiling issues heat issues. I build based off the customer needs and make sure they understand that. I just tried to help and got the response I expected. Have a good day

I said it was a cheap ass way, not someone else dummy. You build your Allisons your way with your out dated parts and tell people it will hold big power. People like you are the big problems with the internet. You built a few transmissions and they worked. Good for you. But with your obvious lack of knowledge you are here telling people how to build a cheap trans. You are the moron that has his nose up in the air, not us.
Go post your greatness somewhere else because you know nothing.

I guess in all your greatness you missed the part about I build them for the customers needs. If they are 400hp and tow they don't need a 5k bill end of story, and your grasping for straws I don't tell them it will hold big power. Never said that I have other options for 400+ guys. Take your tampon out Mike your not the only guy that can build a Allison.

Sorry you got butt hurt. As far as helping people since 2010 according to you; you've been asleep. I have helped many people. guess you were building so many 400 hp Allisons and saving people money you didn't notice. Try searching.

He meant giving away hard earned info Mike.

Everyone knows that if you spend thousands of dollars, and invest countless hours testing theory's and parts that it's your obligation to then give that info out freely on the open forum.
