Re: 6R140

Bolting it in is not very hard or very expensive. I'll bet you could get a decent adapter plate made for no more than a couple grand. That's the cheap and easy part.

Making a wiring harness won't be that hard, you could buy one from Ford and modify it to work in the truck. That should be under a grand for that.

So far you've spent about three grand and it's in the truck but won't shift. What are you going to do for a computer to run it? The Ford computer won't run it because it needs to run the engine and trans together. It can only run a 6.7L engine, and you don't have one of those. So you'll need to invent a computer and software to do this. This is the hard and expensive part. I'll bet it would cost every bit of what 5-6 brand new trucks cost to make a computer that works and software that drives well.

Good luck with this, let me know if you build one and prove me wrong. I don't think I am wrong.

Beefier internals, stronger TC and better shift programming is my bet. It's generally better engineered, obviously being newer it would be.

One of them truckless bastards.
