using the factory published gearing for the 5r110



I was able to use a spread sheet to calculate the RPM reduction of the
gearvendors dbl overdrive once my tire size & rear gearing was input -

Attaching the spreadsheet 'case anyone wants do their own calculations.

Just change the Fields that are hi-lighted in YELLOW to calculate for different tire sizes or rear gearing.

If anyone w/ a 2011+ 6r140 wants to do these calculation theyll need to change the gear ratio too.

I thought the 6.0L already had a 6 speed. I have been eye balling the GV. i have heard great things about them. It is just hard to get over the price.

the 5r110 (2003-2009) uses a "6" speed tranny - only 5 gears are ever used.
there is an alternate gear/strategy that is used in COLD climates, and
when the tranny is still cold.

the new 6r140 (2010+) uses 6 gears and completely different ratios.

Ive posted gearing/ratios for both transmissions, along w/ an RPM chart
which shows a 500rpm drop (for a 5r110 w/ 3.73s). Trucks w/ 4.10s or
lower gearing will have a higher RPM drop (600RPM) compared to what
they currently run (w/out a GV Unit).

Im not interested in gear splitting (although you can, w/ the GV unit), theres
just not a tremendous benefit to be had from it.

Im interested in being able to run GOOD / Strong interstate speeds (75+) and
get better mpg...ive hi-lighted the current rpms (red) and what ill achieve w/
the GV unit installed (in green).

I considered re-gearing to 3.55's but that only gave me a 200 rpm drop, best
case - and for the 1800 bucks invested in re-gearing id be STUCK, unable
to tow & unable to ever get my $ back !

W/ the GV unit i keep the OE gearing, can tow w/ it on or off, and
i can always sell the gv unit and recoupe at least some of my money.

fuel prices are on the rise again, if id done this when the truck was new,
it would have paid for itself by now.
