Im not an expert in transmissions like yourself so IDK. I read that the 8 speed trans in the V6 was only capable of 300ft lbs of tq holding capability and the V8/diesel needed a more beefed up trans for 400+ ft lbs. I can call one of my buddies in powertrain tomorrow at CTC to see what he knows. I could honestly careless im sure both transmissions are pretty good.
