Torqueshift behind 7.3

Just wondering if anyone has done this or know of any adapters to complete the job. If there a stand alone computer out there for this swap?

Thanks

Its not possible. No adapters available to do it.

Jeff if there were adapter plates available it could be done as long as you had a standalone trans controller.

The reason it hasnt been done is cost. A BTS built 4r100 is cheaper than the controller, adapter plate combo would be.

Also the built 4r100 is stronger than a factory 5r110

They took one from a 6.0 and put it in. It is an 02 with nos propane big turbo big injectors and tuned by Jody. Said the tourque hits at a dif time and it couldnt handle it.

just seem to me that the 5r110 is a hell of lot better trans than the 4r100. I'm a Ford diesel tech and have seen very few torqshift go bad and alot of the old one.

I would go with a built John Woods or BTS 4R100 and be done with it. If I recall correctly the 5R110 is sensitive to power input and if not tuned properly to the input power it can destroy itself, even if its built.
