eh not that high, I know the rebuild kit for the E4OD is $450 just for the new clutches and other internals, plus a new triple-disc torque converter is another $1300.....

And since you have the Allison 5-spd, they do have a conversion piece to take a stock 5-spd and turn it into a 6-spd, plus a new torque converter and rebuild kit shouldnt cost much more than what it is for mine

now that I looked at it, it may be cheaper to buy a newly rebuild trans from them, than it is to buy all the parts for it, due to all the electronics, and a new rebuild transmission is just under the $3500 that you had previously stated

haha, yeah i'd done the math at some point a while back and came up to around 3500 - i guess that's why i assumed that... lol I can use that money much better than on a truck... lol wish i could blow it on the truck tho

Yep...$3500 is what it costs to do an Allison right. It is only good to 400HP until its built. Been there and done that. LOL

yeah, you would know... lol I wonder why they don't just build a built motor / tranny package in a stock truck... seems like they could charge an extra $5000 or so and supply a stock vehicle with 450hp/700fp torgue... The tech is there plus some aftermarket parts... They are just governed I guess by the big man with nothing better to do than make up global warming crap to blame on big trucks... lol

A friend of mine in Calif. is sending me some aftermarket diesel stuff to put in Advance Auto as kind of a market test to see how it sells. Should be interesting,

I am lucky my transmission was replaced less than a month before i bought it, due to the guy cracking the entire transmission casing after hauling in the neighborhood of 30,000 lbs, so i am good and i am running Royal Purple in it so it will last
