The 47RE features steel planets as well as an electronic governor pressure solenoid and transducer. In re-designing the 47RE, ATS addressed inherent weaknesses to produce a strong, reliable transmission for towing, daily driving or racing.

The modification process began with the torque converter. Instead of a stamped converter with a single lock-up clutch, the ATS Stage 1 47RE comes with our patented Five-Star torque converter. Utilizing a billet 12 bolt cover, five square tab lock-up clutches, a billet stator and other modifications, this converter is designed for heavy loads, years of reliability and brute power. The goal is to efficiently transfer your 12 or 24V Cummins' power through the converter into the transmission.

In order to handle the increased efficiency of the converter, we addressed the 47RE from bellhousing to tailshaft. The transmission's pump is modified to progressive raise line pressure, above the factory settings, to provide clamping force to the clutch packs. High-performance clutch packs are then added. Pressure plates are precisely machined to add 1 more forward and 1 more direct clutch. High performance bands, billet band strut, billet accumulator piston, and heavy duty overdrive bearings strengthen the clutch pack/band assembly.

Next is the valve body. Dodge 47RE transmissions can be plagued by sticking throttle valve issues. The valve controls shift timing and fluid flow to the clutch packs. When the valve sticks, there can be a no “up-shift” condition. In time, this can wear on the clutch packs and internals to hasten the transmission's life. ATS machines the bore to accept a Teflon sleeve, this ensures precise movement and control of the valve. In addition, the valve body is modified to circulate fluid in park, reverse and neutral, capable of locking the torque converter in any forward gear, and raising line pressure vs. stock.

Features:
  • Five Star billet torque converter
  • Performance transmission pump
  • Modified high performance clutch packs/bands and steels
  • Valve body built around reliability and increased transmission life

Stage 1 Transmission
The Stage 1 (as well as all ATS Transmission Packages) comes standard with the ATS Deep Pan. Featuring a finned design to dissipate heat, and adding five quarts of fluid vs. stock, the pan helps keep the transmission running cool.

  • ATS Built 47-RE Auto Trans
  • ATS 5 Star Viskus Clutch Drive Torque Converter
  • ATS Extra Deep Transmission Pan

Stage 2 Transmission
On the Stage 2 build, ATS adds a billet 300m input shaft and forward hub. Featuring a two-piece design, the input shaft is designed to withstand greater than stock power, torque converter lock-up sooner than stock, increased towing weight and racing applications. The increased capacity comes from the material itself, which is stronger than the factory input shaft. This is coupled with a precisely engineered shaft, directed at absorbing torsional loads from increased power, and transferring it into the transmission.

  • ATS 5 Star Viskus Clutch Drive Torque Converter
  • ATS Extra Deep Transmission Pan
  • ATS Billet Input Shaft

Stage 3 Transmission 
In addition, we include the ATS Commander Lock-Up Controller on this package. This controller allows the user to base lock-up on vehicle speed. Torque converter lock-up can be moved to 1st, 2nd, 3rd gear or overdrive – and can be changed at any time. Our controller features in-cab adjustability, so settings can be changed with the push of a button. Every time the vehicle reaches the set speed, the converter locks. The benefit of early lock-up is reduced transmission temperatures, quicker acceleration and better fuel economy. The ATS Commander Lock-Up Controller will also synchronize lock-up with an exhaust brake, for additional braking force.

Stage 4 Transmission
For added strength at power levels above 450 hp, the ATS billet flex plate is included on the Stage 4. The flex plate is first hard part in the transfer of power from the motor to the torque converter/transmission. As more power over stock is added, the OEM flex plate fails to hold and eventually cracks or breaks. This means the loss of all motion in the vehicle. ATS billet flex plate features a stronger material than stock, precisely machined surface for a perfect fit, and the peace of mind needed to handle power and towing weight.

  • ATS 5 Star Viskus Clutch Drive Torque Converter
  • ATS Extra Deep Transmission Pan
  • ATS Billet Input Shaft
  • ATS Commander Torque Converter Lock-Up Controller
  • ATS Billet Flex Plate

Stage 5 Transmission
Under extreme power or race applications, the stock intermediate shaft becomes a liability. The Stage 5 utilizes a billet intermediate shaft to absorb and transfer extreme power through the transmission. This shaft, arguably, is the most important since an intermediate shaft failure will result in complete transmission failure.

  • ATS 5 Star Viskus Clutch Drive Torque Converter
  • ATS Extra Deep Transmission Pan
  • ATS Billet Input Shaft
  • ATS Commander Torque Converter Lock-Up Controller
  • ATS Billet Flex Plate
  • ATS Billet Intermediate Shaft

Stage 6 Transmission
Going one step further, we also address the transmission output shaft and transfer case headgear. During boosted launches, or when towing substantial weight, the transmission output shaft and/or transfer case headgear can shear. ATS precisely machines the shafts from billet 300M and matches both pieces to each other. This ensures shock load is absorbed and transferred from the rear of the transmission to the transfer case.

You never realize how much power and performance you loose with the stock trans/converter. I only have moderate power upgrades, but the trans upgrade has impressed me the most. Trans runs way cooler than stock. I have had this trans in in my truck over a year. Very pleased with the performace. If you want to wake that truck up. Install one of these trans. only thing I can say otherwise is I would probaly purchase the co-pilot controller. Im looking into adding one. Also if you need trans pan gasket dont waste your time at a retail store or calling ATS. Go to a transmission shop (I.E. when you service filter). Believe me it will save you time. I have called ATS a few times with questions (service, etc). Everyone I talked to was friendly and helpful for the most part. I did install myself. 5-6 hrs (No lift)

The ats transmission is amazing

I put the ATS trans in my 2001 Dodge 2500 and i love everything about it!!!!!! THe transmissoin is ready to roll right out of the box and and looks great. it took me and a buddy about 6 hours to instal and it went in like a dream, just to let you know it is heavy very heavy. When i drove the truck after we installed it it was like driving a hole new truck. I do everything with my truck, everything from every day driving, wheeling, racing and towing heavy loads, and this trans does great in every feild. if you want a great transmission this is the one for you !
