Aisin is a heavier tranny than the 68. I think with any sane mods, it will be fine. Go to 1200 hp for drag racing, and bets are off! LOL
Cummings? :confused013:Mpierce I def ain't gonna get that crazy I am just racking my brain here, about to get a new truck and I am coming from a 2010 ford platinum diesel but I want a long bed now. So I was just gonna get a 2500 cummings crew cab long bed with a few gadgets then I heard about the aisin and I'm a kinda guy that always goes all out. In my application though might be biting off more then I can chew cause the aisin only comes in 3500 and I don't tow everyday I don't really tow anything that a 3500 is even needed but they are bad . I just hate that the one tons ride pretty rough compared to a 2500.
Typing while driving is stupid, with or without correct spellingNick777 take it easy I was driving and writing that so safety came be for spelling!!!!
Don't drive and text.....safety comes WELL before texting, spelling or anything in that category. We don't want to hear about someone texting while posting about purchasing or owning a truck, be iti a Cummings, or a Cummins equipped Ram truck. :thumbsup:Nick777 take it easy I was driving and writing that so safety came be for spelling!!!!
You should spend more money to buy the truck you say you don't need, with the transmission you say you don't want, in case you might be able to mod it someday to get more horsepower and torque that you'll never use.......
Makes perfect sense
Lol I was just messing with ya, I really didn't mean for this thread to go off topicNick777 take it easy I was driving and writing that so safety came be for spelling!!!!
Unless theres some serious differences in the new ones revmax and ats have 68rfe's out that are good up to like 850 hp or something. Leave the building to the professionalsFrom what I understand the Aisin is built to handle more power stock, eg the higher stock output on the 3500 Aisin equipped trucks. The higher output on the 2013 2500 than previous years, caused RAM to do all of this insane torque management and converter lock up business that makes these trucks shift much different than previous years' transmissions.
I've also heard the new 68rfe cannot be made to handle anymore power reliably than it currently supports in stock form. A local shop that is very reputable has tried to build several with internals from sun coast and others with little success. Dave Goerend doesn't offer a built 68rfe, so to me that says something.
I'd go with the Aisin if your looking to bump up power output. The other option would be to swap in a ford tranny later. That would be cool....
