Torqueshift behind 7.3?

So i heard the 4r100 is a pile... Duh. well unless u spend a couple shiny pennies on it.
So the question is has anybody tried to put a torque shift from a 6.0 behind the 7.3? I like the idea of a six speed versus the 3 plus OD.
Any ideas, is it even possible?

There was a thread about a year ago where some of the pro's/con's were discussed about putting a 5r110 behind a 7.3L.

Here's the think to it...
7.3L With 5r110

The thread just ended up dying without an actual conclusion but there was supposedly testing done on the 5r110 with the stand alone controller. I quickly checked Bean's site and didn't see anything about an adapter plate (but i may have just looked over it).

I'm wondering if there has been any success in putting a 5r110 behind a 7.3 too!

Torqshift is a 5 speed yes. It would take a custom bell housing, and a standalone transmission computer to do it

Maybe it is a five but either way i love the way the 6.0 trannys operate versus the pile of 4r100 under my truck....

Doesn't Oreilly sell torque shift? Im pretty sure they do for the 7.3's for about 3,100. I might be wrong.

Has anyone ever heard of this swap. If we can get a 6.0 VGT to work on an OBS this should be simple!
