All kinds of other info about the Allison here too. Watch the whole video:
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.
So is it just the 2020’ with the badged Allison? Just wondering if my 03 is fake news.
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..
And an Allison isn't any better than a built trans those truck come with. It would actually be my last choice.
