Street Terminator PLUS AODE/4R70W, Opinions??

Any views or experience with Lentechs new(ish) Street Terminator PLUS AODE/4R70W transmission, the fact that it uses a fixed line pressure(good or bad) and the 26 spline Stage 2 Midshaft and 3/4 drum for greater torque handling?

Extreme Enthusiast's Choice
Part# 7000-4R70-STP

Rated to 1000 h.p!
Overview: Street Terminator PLUS AODE/4R70W transmissions maintain fully automatic shifting for street ability. They are recomended for aggressive performance engines that still see some street driving. Each unit receives several key internal modifications and upgrades for increased durability. Key among these upgrades are the Lentech exclusive Stage 2, 26 spline midshaft and 3/4 drum This greatly increases torque capacity of 3rd and 4th gears. It is highly recommended that higher than stock axle ratio be installed (3.55 or higher) in conjunction with this transmission model.
Auxiliary transmission oil coolers are also highly recommended.

.New bushings and thrustwasher (where needed)
.New intermediate one-way clutch and spiral lock ring
.New low one-way clutch
.Lentech fixed-pressure Valve Body with automatic shifting
.26 spline Stage 2 Midshaft and 3/4 drum

.New oil pan and bolts
.Re-assembled with all critical clearances adjusted for high performance use.

I have an opinion. Alto clutches suck. There are 4 guys I know of on this site who can build a better transmission to the specs in the articles on this site.
Darrin, Myself, JohnnyLangton, And Kdanner. I would see who you are closest to and do business with them.

sounds like the same thing as a TCI tranny, gonna spend upwards of 2300 bucks on a new one when you can build your own better for under a $1000.

if you're wanting to spend that much on a new built tranny why not just do a 5 speed swap and be done with it? just my .02.

thanks, reason I am asking is I would rather have someone else(darrin or yourself) build it using the better clutch packs. More interested in the upgraded midshaft an matching 3/4 drum which can be purcahased separately and sent to my tranny builder of choice. Secondly what are the setbacks of a fixed line pressure on an auto shiftin 4r70W keeping in mind this is a street and strip vehicle with definite street time as well?

As for closest builder who is ythe closest to Australia?

None of us are close. I've been there before though. Fly me in and have all the parts and I'll build it for free. Then we can go get pissed on VB.

What about the fixed line pressure on an auto shifting 4r70W, given you have sufficient auxilery cooling how will this affect the longevity of a Hi-po built box?
