The 47RE transmission is the weakest point on a Dodge Cummins truck. Not only do they fail on trucks with minor upgrades, but even trucks in stock form have been known to be too powerful. A heavy duty truck needs parts which can stand up to heavy trailers, stop-and-go commutes to work, or high-horsepower applications. That's why ATS modifies the transmission to make it the strongest and most reliable part of your drivetrain. 

With the many shortcomings of the 47RE, none are more important than the clutch packs. This is what takes the power load and transmits it to the rear wheels. We increase the clutch count in the Overdrive, and Overdrive Brake clutch packs which allow much higher torque capacity in each gear. Clutch material is also essential which is why we use Borg Warner and Raybestos clutches which has both high torque strength as well as longevity and reliability. 

Another important aspect is the hard parts on the transmission. The factory sheet metal strut anchor is replaced with a much stronger billet strut anchor, allowing more precision application of the band. Along with the factory plastic accumulator piston is replaced with a billet unit as well. The apply lever is a 1:3.8 ratio apply arm, which applies the borg warner red lining band. This band features a performance friction material capable of holding higher power levels. 

The valve body receives extensive modifications as well. We give the valve body the ability to lock the torque converter in 1st and 2nd gear, circulate transmission fluid in park/reverse/neutral, machine the TV valve passage and install our proprietary TV valve sleeve, and increase line pressure.

This Warranty shall not apply to any automatic transmission that has been improperly stored or installed This Warranty shall not apply to misapplication, improper operating conditions, accidents, or neglect. This Warranty shall not apply to an automatic transmission that has been improperly repaired, maintained and/or altered by the owner or his agent/tech. Most importantly, all transmission shafts are not covered by this Warranty on any transmission due to the capability of certain situations to cause stress-loads beyond the structural ability of the shaft. ATS’ Automatic Transmission Warranty is NOT transferable. It is mandatory for implementation of this warranty that line pressures are tested at time of install. ATS will not pay for any fluids replaced in the event of a transmission failure.

Most Popular Questions

Does your 47RE built transmission come with a torque converter?

Deep Pan & Torque Converter sold separately
Whats the power rating?
View Staff Answer 

The ATS BUILT 47RE TRANSMISSION is designed for trucks with stock to mild power increases, light towing and daily driving. (Same as a Stage 1 from ATS without the Deep Pan and Torque Converter)

How much horse power can this transmission hold? Does XDP offer a transmission that can stand up to 1,000 HP?
View Staff Answer 
Standard ATS Built Transmissions are designed for trucks that are used for light towing, daily driving and stock or slightly modified power levels.

We offer transmissions that fit all HP/TQ needs! As long as the key areas of strength and durability have been addressed, you can withstand those high HP/Torque situations. ATS transmissions, for example, all basically start with the same modifications. Changes in materials are then address as the HP/TQ requirements increase. The difference between a 500HP transmission and a 1,000 HP transmission could often be no more than converting over to a stronger billet internals A billet Input shaft, Output shaft, Intermediate shaft, Flexplate, along with upgraded electronics allow there transmissions to withstand greater torsional loads and absorb the load transfers of power through the transmission, thus increasing reliability. Without these billet shafts, the transmission is at risk for failure during heavy towing/competition use.

ATS offers a number of different level packages on their transmissions. Contact one of our Diesel Experts at 1-888-343-7354 for more information!
