rebuilding with upgrades

I am about ready to put my rebuilt 4.6 quad cam back in and decided to go ahead and build the trans first since it will be a pain to take out later. SO here is where I am so far on parts for the 4R70W.
If you can think of anything else chime in.

Sonnax Billet forward drum, Sonnax line pressure booster, Billet intermediate shaft , Fairbanks Trans-Action kit (valve body tuning kit ), Alto Red Eagle clutches and Toline steels, Alto Red Eagle OD band and reverse band, late model " Positive Diode " to replace the weak sprag clutch, Sonnax OD servo shaft, new 3 piece solenoid kit with EPC. Marauder triple disc converter 2800 stall , SFI flex plate, tail shaft lube line, Transteck Paper and rubber kit, New Bonded pistons, Lock-Heart plate style oil cooler, 16qt AmsOil trans fluid "Red"....
Anything I'm missing...

I just got the Sonnax forward drum myself. That thing is beefy! I am doing my rebuild similar to you. Good luck

I'm building one with Rabestos Blues in the Direct clutch; we'll see how that goes.

I'm using koline steels thruout' but in stock thickness, and avoiding the Alto thin plates, due to heat concerns.

I'll kill it in a few years; I'll post up the carnage when it goes.

Just one question. Why are you guys using that Sonnax drum?
