I can't personally give you any info to help. However, there's a local guy that I ran into the other day that had swapped a 5.9HO into his 06 F250 and he adapted it to the Torqueshift. I thought that was great, considering how much more the Torqueshift can handle over a 48RE (stock vs stock). I would also think the extra gears would make it a good bit faster and more driveable.

Yea, I looked under the hood of this guys Fummins and there was TONS of room all around the motor to get to everything. It looked pretty simple.

My cousin is running the TorqShift. They make an adapter with a stand alone controller.

I'm not gonna bash them because I have no personal experience, but ny cousin called and tried to deal with them and they wouldn't help him at all. Basically told him that it was too big of a job for someone to do and he should just take it to them. Didn't offer any suggestions or anything and he was ready to purchase everyhting.

Oh wow, hopefully that's not a normal thing... But either way, that's no way to conduct business.
