    I talked to them last year at SEMA. I have thought about putting a Cummins in my 03 3500.

    There is no way in hell I would put an Allison in a Ford or Cummins.

    If you have money to burn and time to wait I guess it would be cool. I see this being a headache trying to get all the computer systems to communicate with each other when you switch a tune. I would never do this swap into a truck that makes an income and has to be on the road daily. My buddy is talking about it but investing $10k+ into a 20 year old 7.3 is a turn off.

    Interesting that the only difference between the Allison 1000 and the 2000 are helicut gears and the fluid pump.
    A lot more to learn beyond the swap.

    I could not find any pricing on thier site so i went to thier distributors... for a 99-02 7.3 ford 4wd it was just under 6k ( the dodge kits were 5500 )for thr kit. That is no shipping or tranny. Most decent tranny rebuild shops are 3500-4500 and a 2000 core charge.

    New the cheapest i could find was $9300

    This sounds like its at least a 15k project to me. I can not see this ever paying off. Even of you never have to replace the tranny again, the milage increase will never make up the cost.

    In 1981 a friend's family farm specialized in putting detroits in their f-250 foremens pickups... Big fricken motor for that truck...

    We ran a huge AC paddle wheel scraper with twin v12 detroits..

    Lol.

    And an Allison isn't any better than a built trans those truck come with. It would actually be my last choice.
