6 speed conversion

I have a 2005 F250 auto and I was thinking about doing a swap to a 6 speed. Does anyone know anybody around Northeast TN that could do this? Could a local Transmission shop do it?

no more standard gearbox on the 2011. there is alot involved in swapping to 6 speed. the rear cover of the engine is different between the auto and manual, so its not just a swap out and in. some major components need to be changed as well.

Like fordmasterdieseltech already stated, NO. The bellhousing bolt patterns between the two engines are completely different, which would mandate changing the rear engine cover, not to mention pedal assembly, wiring and PCM. By the time you price all that together, with the labour involved, you would be a lot further ahead if you simply just bought a 6 speed 6.0L and sold yours.

it's a pain in the *** as well. Did my 06 king ranch any everything is different. Even the tranny tunnel from a manual truck has to be welded in.

look for the thread... project 6 speed lariat to king ranch conversion in this forum.

Did you swap the manual tranny in or did you put the KR body on the other chassis

Does that adapter just bolt up, or is is going to require disassembly of the engine?
