Zf6 swap questions

Pulled my auto out this morning and ordered a swap kit for a zf6. Iíve done some research and found a great write up on the process but doesnít mention a few things. I noticed the swap kit didnít come with a steering column. Does anyone know if I can just swap out the plastic cover on the column with one out of a manual truck? Or do I need an entire column out of a manual truck? I realize the manual trucks have the key ďlockĒ tab on the columns, Iím not too worried about having that if it isnít necessary. The swap kit also included a pcm, guy said it was out of a 99, didnít know if it was e99 or l99, will it matter in my 01? (truck is chipped and will be retuned). Itís also coming with a wire harness for the zf6, is it plug and play or do I need to splice some wires? If so, what wires? The kit is coming with a front driveline, will I need a rear driveline? Truck is a crew cab long bed. Iím getting a little ahead of myself and Iím excited to start the swap but wanted to get some info before the trans gets here. Help is greatly appreciated, thanks!

Re: Zf6 swap questions

I have only done one auto/zf6 swap, and from what I remember, you don't need a column, you can just remove the gear stick and the gear indicator on the dash and put a manual column cover on.

E99 trucks have different injectors than l99 I think. Not 100% sure on that.

On the one I did, we did not have access to a harness, so I had to splice 2 wires on the auto harness to get it to turn over. The 2 biggest on the gear range plug. The manual harness might be just plug and play.

You might be able to use the drivelines you got, they would just be stretched out a bit more. Dont jump it.

The trans hump on manuals is way bigger too, so you might want to find one you can graft onto your cab. Or hack it up and grab the sledge.

Shoulda bought a Cummins.

Re: Zf6 swap questions

Ok thanks

I know the e99ís have different injectors, but I think I was told tuning it will run the ones I have. Not sure though

Donít plan on jumping my dually haha, Iíd be more worried about everything else before the driveshafts.

The swap came with the trans tunnel cut out of the standard truck

Re: Zf6 swap questions

Is there any way to tell if the pcm is an l99 or e99 based off of the pcm code? Code is DAC2

Re: Zf6 swap questions

I believe the zf6 is shorter than the auto. So you will need a longer driveshaft.

Do you have a digital or mechanical odometer.
