Reman 46RE Going In, Any Upgrade Suggestions Before Install?

Hey guys,

So I am warrantying the ETE Reman 46RE I put into my ram 2 years/10,000 miles ago. I had a TCC solenoid failure that caused some issues and when I dropped the pan I found a whole lot of metal so they're sending me a new one.

My question is, while I've got this nice new trans sitting out on the bench, is there anything I should do to it? I'm looking at throwing a Transgo TFOD-JR shift kit in it, and I've got a big auxiliary cooler, but that's about all right now.

Eventually, once I've got a good reason to dive into the bottom end of this 360, I'd like to do a mild cam, EQ heads, maybe a slight compression bump, and a dual plane m1 setup. Nothing too crazy, but somewhere in the 300-350 crank horsepower and 400lb-ft realm so I'd like the trans to be able to live behind an engine like that at least for a while.

The truck doesn't do much towing, but gets plenty of WOT passing and general use. Won't ever see sticky tires or the track. Has 4.10s in the axle.

Shift kit and good maintenance good enough?

Thanks

put an inline oil filter on the cooler lines. derale makes a decent kit. I mounted mine on the frame rail outboard right ahead of the wheel well. and don't use the heat exchange in the rad. run straight to the cooler.

I kinda like the idea of running that inline filter. My only concern would be flow. The pump has already gotta push that fluid through 2 full sized coolers (factory upgraded cooler and a hayden aftermarket one, small section in the rad was bypassed along with check ball). Can anyone comment for certain about whether or not running 2 coolers and an inline filter would be fine?

Yep, already bypassed. My 01 Off Road has the upgraded factory trans cooler (part of the heavy duty group or trailer tow group) and when I did the last reman install I also threw on the included hayden cooler required to keep the warranty so it's got 2 full size coolers.

The cooler subject has been talked about before. If you live in Alaska bypassing the rad cooler is not a good idea. I live where temps can range from single digits to triple so i'm keeping the rad cooler. I also have the separate factory trans cooler so it works with both extremes. As for the upgrade look at the options available from patc. I installed some rare earth magnets in the pan, They will attract more metal debris than the stock one. Keep it out of the filter!
