That would be awesome. I'm waiting on an answer for this. Only thing could be that the tranny is different behind the 6.7s than ours. Idk if they use the 5r110

6.7s have a 6R140.
The 5R110 uses a TCM so it's possible I'd think.

Ya driving in the rockys my truck hunts gears and it drives me nuts, 3rd is too low, 4th is perfect but let up around a corner, it shifts to 5th looses boost and then i have to drop it down and go through the whole process at the next bend/hill, errrr.

Hopefully someone from the aftermarket can join in, on if its possible and what needs to be done to make it work.

Have you tried getting a custom tune with early lockup? I'm sure if you talked with any custom tuner they could make something work for you that would hold the gears longer.

Man i really wish some transmission company would check into this. I know Spartan sells a TCM to run on the 5R110 behind the 6.4's. Seems like they could somehow use that to make a selectable shifter...
