6.4 transmission

So my transmission went out in in my truck and I found another locally brand new for 1500 but it has a 6.4 tc with it. If I just swap flywheels that should be all I need right? Everything else should be the same? I've read on a few past threads that I might need a separate controller for it but have never heard of that before. Any help would be great.

Last I knew swapping the flywheel or torque converter was all that was required.

A separate controller won't be necessary

The flex plate(8 stud holes instead of 6) is all I was told also. The reason a standalone controller was mentioned was because the 6.4 uses a separate TCM. The reason it does this is because the injector driver is internal to the PCM, unlike a 6.0 which has a combination PCM/TCM and a separate injector driver (FICM). That is where the confusion originated from, the 5R110W for all years is controlled the same way.

The balance on the flywheel could be different from a 6.4 to the 6.0 since the are a different engine. Yes the bolt pattern is the same on the crank but the front pulley is way different. I would put the correct torque converter in it for the 6.0 not swap flywheels. You don't want an engine balance problem to wipe out the bottom end of your engine.

From what I have been told... you just need to put an aftermarket converter on the 6.4 transmission that has both the 6.0 and 6.4 mounting holes. Then it should bolt right up. I know my tranny is out of a 6.4 and it was built by andy warren. They both look identical and everything bolted up just fine.


I am not sure if any of the sensors are different but you could easily swap that over from your core 6.0 tranny.

The transmission came with a tc. It will be cheaper to just buy the flex player and swap it out then to buy another tc. I'm not to worried about balance problems. From what I've read people have done it with no issues at all.

Might not but I wouldn't chance it. Engines aren't cheap.

Anyone know if the harness plug is the same? Is it plug and play electrically?
