G56 swap

Hey guys, been a long time since I’ve logged on here but I am back and hoping for some answers. I currently own an 08 6.7 and I am in the process of doing a manual trans swap. I believe I have everything I need except the only thing I am concerned about is the manual transmission file that may need to be loaded once swap is complete. I currently have an h&s xrt pro, any idea if I can use this to change the file to manual transmission? I have searched and searched and I know it’s possible with the smarty and efi live but I am trying to to have to go buy a new tuner just for this. Also is it possible to drive the truck with the auto file until I can get a manual file put in? Does the file change throttle response etc or just take care of some dash lights. Please let me know, much appreciated

From what I understand under the initial setup of the H&S you choose between auto and manual. Anybody recall it giving this option if I was to return to stock and then load a file back on?

They are out of business I don’t think there is anybody to contact about tuning files

Ok bummer then. Ya you may need to step up to EFI live or smarty then.

any other suggestions? I seem to find the odd post that suggests h&s will give the option of an auto or manual truck when you go back to stock and attempt to load a tune. Please if anyone can help out this would help a ton before I dive into this project

If you have the XRT Pro, why don't you return to stock and then reload your tune and see if it give you the option to select manual or auto?

I believe the dealer can put a manual file in your truck as well , If I'm wrong please someone chime in .

Looks like it shouldn’t be an issue. I plugged the H&S in, attempted to “return to stock” and it asked me if transmission is manual or automatic. I did not flash it just yet, I will wait until I do the swap and let you guys know how it goes in case anyone else ever has the same concern. Thanks

For anyone that wants to look back at this post. Project is done and it turned out amazing worth every penny. Completely different truck now. I was able to load a new tune on and chose manual transmission rather then auto so no issues there. Only thing I need to figure out is how to get the service 4wd light off the dash since a swapped in a manual shift case np271. Light goes away if I plug the old electronic actuator in but it is kinda big to just leave plugged in there’s no where to tie it up or mount it really. Need to figure out which wires to jump on the plug

I wonder if the mini maxx will do the same? Return to stock and then select manual?

How much did it cost you to do this swap?
