Exclamation Allison Transmission Swap

Im building a list to aid in swapping an allison into an OBS (or any 7.3) so far

Allison T1000/2000 (4X4) depending on application
Adapter Plate
Stand Alone Controller
Drive Shafts Modified?
mounts

Almost everything new, is here Allison 1000 Performance Transmission from PATC, Allison 1000 Performance Parts

you can find used parts which would be cheaper on craigslist or ebay and if anyone wants to modify the list go ahead this is something im starting to see what people do with it. :twocents

maybe use a 545. a little more heavy duty, but you probably need to pound the trans tunnel a little; ok alot.

the T1000 6 speed is a dual over drive so when im just cruising on the long haul rpm will be lower and my fuel economy will go up. Im looking for a stock tranmission that wouldnt have an issue withstanding 700+ ft/lbs from the engine. if built right can also handle a hell of alot more HP. my link above has everything with a few supplemented components, it will work

Dont waste your time. Build your E40d and be done with it.

Its not that bad, but when im on and for a bit and let off just before the shift point i go to the chiropractor for realignment, its smooth cruising otherwise

less time, less money, less headache by building a stocker up, BTS, suncoast, etc. Allisons are not the greatest thing, not nearly as tough as they used to be
