might be easier to put in a torqshift. which is just as good imo. the Allison in the dmax aren't that great.

you would need an adapter plate and a stand alone harness with a obd2 plug to put the tranny in plus custom driveshafts and such because you would have to run the gm transfer case. the allison is a bada55 transmission. i had a 06 LBZ duramax with EFI Live tuning and was running 837hp on the rollers with a completely stock 6spd allison and stock converter. the trick to the allison is tuning it properly with tuning the engine. sh** a55 tuners like edge and bullydog chew up allisons (the reason of the "allisons cant hold 100hp over stock myth) because they dont tune the trans along with the engine. good tuners like PPE and EFI Live can tune the trans properly to hold added power! regards

get a good triple disc, low stall torque converter. solid flywheel. i'd go with heavy duty internals equivalent to those in the f-550 and f-650 transmissions. these parts such as (clutches, plates, valve bodies, gears, spacers, etc..) are heavy duty parts and are plenty stout. this would probably be the cheapest route but there is always an alternative. just depends on how bad you need/want it and how much you are willing to spend.

My buddy limped his 05 LLY with a PPE 100hp tune. But maybe it was just bad luck

you can still limp the motor for rail pressure codes with a 100 hp tune. my buddy is currently running the ppe hot+2 on level 9 stacked with an edge on his LLY with 37s with the ppe 4.10 gear change on the hot+2 and beats on his truck a lot and no tranny problems
