In 1996, Dodge went from the hydraulic 47RH to the partially electronic 47RE. The 47RE features steel planets as well as an electronic governor pressure solenoid and transducer. In re-designing the 47RE, ATS addressed inherent weaknesses to produce a strong, reliable transmission for towing, daily driving or racing.
The modification process began with the torque converter. Instead of a stamped converter with a single lock-up clutch, the ATS Stage 1 47RE comes with our patented Five-Star torque converter. Utilizing a billet 12 bolt cover, five square tab lock-up clutches, a billet stator and other modifications, this converter is designed for heavy loads, years of reliability and brute power. The goal is to efficiently transfer your 12 or 24V Cummins' power through the converter into the transmission.
In order to handle the increased efficiency of the converter, ATS addressed the 47RE from bellhousing to tailshaft. The transmission's pump is modified to progressive raise line pressure, above the factory settings, to provide clamping force to the clutch packs. High-performance clutch packs are then added. Pressure plates are precisely machined to add 1 more forward and 1 more direct clutch. High performance bands, billet band strut, billet accumulator piston, and heavy duty overdrive bearings strengthen the clutch pack/band assembly.
Next is the valve body. Dodge 47RE transmissions can be plagued by sticking throttle valve issues. The valve controls shift timing and fluid flow to the clutch packs. When the valve sticks, there can be a no “up-shift” condition. In time, this can wear on the clutch packs and internals to hasten the transmission's life. ATS machines the bore to accept a Teflon sleeve, this ensures precise movement and control of the valve. In addition, the valve body is modified to circulate fluid in park, reverse and neutral, capable of locking the torque converter in any forward gear, and raising line pressure vs. stock.
ATS Transmission Packages come standard with the ATS Deep Pan featuring a finned design to dissipate heat, adding five quarts of fluid over stock. This helps keep the transmission running cool. All ATS transmission packages come backed with a 5 year / 500,000 mile warranty.
One of the weakest points of this transmission is the stock input shaft. At increased power levels, towing weight or in performance applications, the stock input shaft can break or twist. When this occurs, the transmission will lose movement and can damage the converter, pump and transmission. ATS recommends using a billet input with increased power and/or towing capacity/frequency.
The theory behind a billet shaft is to increase the strength of the material and flex to absorb torsional loads. This allows it to reliably hold increase power levels. ATS' two piece billet input shaft is designed to increase the reliability of the transmission, withstand greater than stock power and torque converter lock-up in sooner-than-factory settings.
While billet shafts are not indestructible, billet 300M material, coupled with stringent design and testing make them far superior to stock input shafts.
Adding a co-pilot or commander to your transmission will put the control at your finger tips. One of the things that many people want to do is have a transmission that they can race on the weekends and still drive it everyday without having to deal with harsh shifts driving on the streets. With the transmission controller, we give you exactly that freedom. During everyday driving, the lower settings will give you smooth shifts during everyday driving, and at the track, the higher settings will give you full throttle shifting that are quick and crisp. Along with this you gain control over your torque converter and can bring it on faster or later depending on your driving style and likes.
ATS billet flexplates are SFI approved, meaning that they stand up to the toughest race application standards. These are crafted out of strong billet steel allowing your transmission to shift faster and harder with out running the risk of breaking the flexplate. The added strain of racing your high horsepower truck is put directly onto the flexplate, giving it much more pressure than the factory settings ever intended. The added strength allows this high-stress situation to be overcome, and transfer all those ponies to the wheels.
