HotRodTractor is piecing together a 7.3/Alli setup, but he said it won't be running very soon.

Putting an Alli in is going to be big $$, number one because you'll need to build it if you want it to hold, and number two the adapter plate and other needed parts are not cheap.

I would figure $10k or so to start, it depends on how strong you build the Alli and how much hlp you need getting it wired and everything fabbed to put it in. It's not anywhere near a cut and dry project.

I wouldn't say that. I have helped put an Alli behind a Cummins in a Dodge and it was alot nicer to drive afterwards for being a Dodge.

We considered this project for my truck at one point, but at that time there wasn't anyone making the adapter plate, and I couldn't justify the cost vs. having a BTS built.

Was the Dodge a 5 speed auto before hand?

What benefit does the Allison have over the 5R110, other than a single gear?
