The Empire Performance EPE-5R110S Modified Direct Clutch Solenoid for your 03-10 Ford 6.0L/6.4L Powerstroke was designed to deliver a solid solution. The 5R110 TorqShift transmission is one of the most robust transmissions ever offered in a medium duty pickup. It does however have a weakness. The 5R110 transmission is controlled through the use of solenoids to turn on and off gears. A gear is commanded by the computer and a solenoid applies fluid directly to that clutch. In stock power applications the stock solenoid is fine.
Outside of that range, the factory piece cannot provide enough fluid to the clutch fast enough to get the clutches together in a short enough time. Long term slipping of the clutch leads to failure. Direct clutch is not only used for 5th gear in the transmission, but it is also used when in reverse as well. All solenoids are modified from brand new parts and are then tested in house on a Solx 2000 Solenoid tester.

The included plastic cap must remain installed on the end of the solenoid or damage to the transmission can occur.
In rare instances some aftermarket transmission tuning will not work with the modified direct clutch solenoid due to the tuning commanding excessive line pressure.
