Re: allison behind a 7.3L

ahh so stocklike they are better, but modded engine not so much? all our firetrucks have them, and we put them thru hell. but then again, a little more power than a 7.3

Re: allison behind a 7.3L

dont think they're better stock either. I have seen a modded 6.0 put a torq shift through a heck of a lot more than the alison can stand when modding the dmax.

Talking Re: allison behind a 7.3L

The Alison in your fire trucks is a little different than whats behind a Duramax, First of there proble 7 speeds. the reason for this is you guys deal with citty driving. You have to slow down turn corners that kind of thing.

Re: allison behind a 7.3L

nope four speed with "overdrive" if you wanna call it that. but they are geared very low. top speed prob about 65 on the fastest one. the ladders only go about 55.

Talking Re: allison behind a 7.3L

Yea, I forgot too mention that too. What is it a 2500? the new 6 speed they put in them from 06 up. I think people hear the name Allison and feel their getting a bulit proof trans in their truck. I've heard some say Allison should be Imbarased to put their name on the thing because they have so many issuues. I don't know that much, but I would like to drive the 6 speed one to see what its like. You have to remember all the garbage trucks out there with Allisons, but there huge compared to the one in the chevy.
