Is anyone out there making a kit to swap to the new "Torqshift" transmission?

I dont know much about this topic but are your concerns the PCM and mating surfaces for engine to trans and trans to transfer case?

That's correct. And the manual shifting buttons on the shifter stick on the newer trucks and what has to be done in that area.

It would probably be cheaper and more reliable to just build your 5R110. The aftermarket has some nice parts.

I agree. I was curious about doing it.

Not to be that guy reviving old threads but I was wondering if any progress has come in this area. I have a 2010 F450 and I would love to get that new trans behind my 6.4 to gain some fuel milage. I was looking into the gear vendor od's but I just don't see it being worth it, and to much hassle shifting it in and out. Plus with this trans being able to shift it via push button is nice too. Maybe its just a pipe dream but always looking for a way to get better mpgs.

there are places that have built 4r100's that are ready to bolt in place of the 5r110, I'd be curious if there is a 6r140, H&S proved they're solid from the factory
