Just speculating, but the PCM shifts the auto tranny, and there's no PCM for the OBS trucks that would know how to shift a 5-speed automatic. Dunno if the 5R110 was ever mated to the 7.3 in the SDs, but I doubt a PCM from an SD would work in an OBS at all.

And TorqueFlites are Chrysler trannies (not that company's strong suit, exactly....).

The torque shift will not bolt up to a 7.3

Torquflites are DAMN good trannies. No, it wont fit.

But I know a guy who built a twin turbo 12v cummins, and used a torqueflite to hold the power :thumbsup:

There are a couple aftermarket controllers out for the 5r but no one has been able to get all of the functions to operate like factory. They use them behind cummins all the tome and can take a pretty good beating. The controllers run about 600 bucks plus programming time. The hardest part would be the bellhousing bolt pattern that and the fact that the 5r is a huge trans. I am pretty sure you would have to mod the floor a bit to get it to fit in the truck. add to that new tcase, driveshafts, shift mech for both the trans and the tcase. you maybe able to just move the trans crossmember to fit in place. also you would have to use a pcm out of a manual truck to get your engine to run right the way I understand it is that the auto pcms get upset if they dont see what the trans is doing.
