    Usshift will update the firmware and install the trans brake free of cost, just have to send funds for them to ship it back to you. I have all the parts for swap, just waiting on Brett Lasala to make his billet planetary for my trans.

    Where’s the best place to source a 6r80? I need to start gathering parts for this.

    I used AN to buy some of the stuff new, i.e flywheel,backing plate, ect.. But might not be cheapest for you being in CA and all

    Quick 6 now has a trans brake with there controller. I had to send mine in to get done. Bolts are ones i grabbed from hardware store i think 4 are 3 1/2 inches and the other 2 you can use 3 inch on. Trans has dipstick on side of it. You have to follow special procedure to fill it. I had a msd 2 step but made my car run like crap so i took it off.

    Make sure you get some good track vids when you can. As soon as my car is back on the road with a new motor and running good I am gonna jump all over this swap. I have an idea I’m looking into for paddle shifters so I’m pretty excited to get going.

    You used an F150 2 wheel drive trans correct?

    A good start is seeing what it cost new.
    Trans 3,200
    QT bell housing 680.
    McLeod 800rst/1000rxt. So very close to 5K new
    Then you still have the drive shaft, clutch cable,TOB, so That's another couple hundred bucks.

    I have all these parts aswell and I will be doing the swap this winter. And putting up all the parts listed up for sale. I plan on asking a little more then half of what the parts cost new. I figure close to 6k for everything I plan on asking 3k.

    But I do have receipts and confirmed mileage, 4 years old with 14k miles.
