I have a 03 Lb7 and it needs a tranney bad. It has been in limp mood way to many times. I would like to put a zf6 in it does anyone know where i can get one and everything i need for it? I dont really want to put an allison back in it. But if i have to i am going to go with the suncoast. I appreciate any help thanks.

Gonna have about the same involved for either. Call around to part recycling (formerly known as a junk yard) and find out if they are apart of a network. If so, have them find you a price on a ZF6.

On a Suncoast level, I would just buy the kit and install it. Take the transmission case to a shop to be cleaned, and put it back together. Stage IV can hold more than you will ever be able to put to the ground on a single charger. Stage III would hold well for a stock charger.

You can get a DD clutch or the Suncoast from one of the supporting vendors of the site.

I figured that i would have about the same involved. I have called around to a couple junk yards around here. But they didnt have anything for me. So i figured i would ask on here to see if i could get some help. The stage III is good for 500rwhp im pretty sure that i am puttin down almost 600rwhp so i would go with the stage IV that way there isnt a chance of me doin it again. Do you know of any junk yards that mite have what i am looking for? thanx

Dan @ Midwest 517-824-2013. He can fix you up with all the conversion parts and a trans. I know where there's a used ZF6 but it's way overpriced :bang:.

Sorry about that number not working. I talked to him for about 20min today about the conversion. He'll get ya fixed up. Let me know how it turns out cause in the future I may have to convert one.
