    How much power are you making and how many miles have you had that hp. Just wondering what kind of engine life can be expected from a 500hp 12v cummins. Originally was thinking of a dt466 swap but if the Cummins can make that power and still last 200k miles and just need some bearings and rings...
  2. 89-93 Powertrain
    So I’m looking at buying a 93 first gen with the A518/46RH I want to know if I can swap a 48RE into it, the 48 I’d want to use is going to have a full manual valve body and a gated shifter Edit: I know it won’t bolt right up, I’d probably have to change the adapter plate, flex plate starter and...
  3. 3rd Gen. Powertrain
    Hey all, I am looking for a simple yes or no answer and I have tried looking everywhere to no avail. Since the late 3rd gen 1500 Mega Cab Hemi (07) sits on a 2500 frame, will the FRAME engine mount also accept the 24v 5.9 Cummins?
  4. 3rd Gen. Non-Powertrain
    Hey all. Just had a quick question for y'all. I've been toying with the idea of updating my steering wheel from the ugly (in my opinion) 2003 wheel up to the facelifted 2004-2008 wheel. I've secured a deal on an 8/10 condition wheel with audio switches, cruise switches and airbag with clock...
  5. 3rd Gen. Powertrain
    Start by disconnecting negative battery terminals, removing interior pieces and shifter, draining fluids, removing the driveshafts, supporting transmission with a good transmission jack (also always strap it to said jack using at least 2 ratchet straps), remove crossmember, unbolt transfer case...

  7. 3rd Gen. Powertrain
    Hey guys, After cooking not only one but two "built" 48re's I'm thinking its time for the swap to a NV5600. I found a complete swap that claims he has everything to do it, from the interior plastics to everything mechanical. the trans came out of a bone stock 04.5 2wd, and my truck being an 05...
  8. 94-98 Powertrain
    Hey guys, Im seconds old to this forum, so apologies if im not posting in the right spot. I bought a 1982 Chevy suburban K20 3/4. its a great project truck, with a 6.2 diesel. Now, youre all groaning, yes the slow naturally aspirated 130hp GM engine. Its reliable and economical, and easy to work...
  9. 3rd Gen. Powertrain
    So, I thought I had this figured out, because I read all of the previous forums on doing the swap. Wiring pretty simple, right? Take the "yellow wire with blue tracings and ground it, or hook to clutch switch and ground, put the two reverse wires on a pigtail to the plug" Wrong. My truck (a...

  11. 98.5-02 Powertrain
    Hi all, I have a 2002 24v 4x4 dually with the 47re, right now the truck is bone stock power wise, but I would like to change that. Instead of a built auto or nv4500 I was wondering about a 5 or 6 speed eaton. (Long life, holds more power, cheaper) I know it’s bigger, but I can cut the trans...
