BD-Power Tow & Street 47RE Transmission
1996-2002 Dodge 5.9L Cummins
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 re-program 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. We install
new input shafts and hubs to eliminate possible metal fatigue or high
torque load damage from prior use. We recommend billet steel input and
output shafts for applications with extra big tires and modified power
Inside each transmission is a NEW DESIGN valve body that
achieves up to 80% higher clutch apply pressures over the stock unit and
up to 50% over the competitors with the pressure 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 and no shuttle shifting problems.
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
Each transmission is dyno-tested to make sure it functions
properly in all gears, then the pan is dropped and everything inspected
and adjusted before it is shipped to you in one of our containers. Torque Converter sold separately.
