Im a big fan of the C6. Its cheap, simple, and tough. Just needs an over drive unit. Any computer controls wouldn't be an issue for me since I would go with a manual valve body. Anyway, I know there are different adapter plates and was just wondering if they make one that will work for a C6.

We rebuilt a C6 last week that was in a Sky Trax forklift with four cylinder cummins. I bet that combo would be sweet in a Dakota !!:cool:

Thanks, I just checked out their site and they do have a plate for 699. Anybody else have any thoughts on why I should or shouldn't do this? I know a manual would be the toughest, but I drive a semi for a living so Im really looking for a reliable auto in my personal vehicle.

A 47rh is a cheap, simple, and reliable unit that has an OD section and no electronics. Or you could throw a 727 torque flite behind the cummins since that's all the 47rh/re is.

Second that, and add that adaptor plates for the 727 should be similar to the 47R*, and if not, could be found at a lower price than the $699 mentioned.

Just about all trans can be bullet proof when built right. I agree with when saying that the c6 is a very strong trans one of the strongest stock trans that you can buy. Try gearvendors.com for the overdrive unit.
