Can u put a transmission from the six liter on a 7.3 truck? Don't haze me too bad!
Hmmm. Guess you could, but you would have more $$ into a stock 5R100 than a John Wood or BTS built 4R100 trans would cost you. I have heard that the 4R100 is a better trans....

It's possible, but it is going to cost A LOT. First you need an adapter because the TorqShift isn't made with a case that will bolt to a 7.3L. Then you have to find a computer to run it. No Ford computer will work. I hear there is an aftermarket one, but I'd be VERY surprised if it works very well.

He works cheap! If he can get it done for that it's either going to be junk or he works miracles. It would have expected a zero after each of those numbers, at a minimum. I used to do things like that for a living, and to do it for a TorqShift is a HUGE job. Developing 4R100 programs is child's play compared to what it takes to make a TorqShift work properly.

Mark..that price is just the adapter...thats what he does. No controls. he wants someone to pay for the engineering of the adapter first.

Ahhh...that's a reasonable price for an adapter. The computer is going to be A LOT more expensive.
