brattt's nightmare 6.0 build

So here it begins. No more 4.0.

Going in so far:

6.0 from an 04 H2 and a 4l80E from a 93ish Chevy pickup. (thanks bbaxj)

Going with a 241 t-case. May upgrade later, for now that's what the budget allows. Just ordered motor mounts from Novak.


Stay tuned!

nice. if your going with a chevy 241 case, you can swap dodge output shaft parts on it to have a fixed rear output shaft. instead of having to buy a sye.

Have you thought about using a Ford np205. You can swap in a 32 spline input and it will be a lot stronger. The low range is not as good but i think the torque of that 6.0 will make up for that. I think you will end up blowing up that 241.
I think you could get a Ford 205 for @ $100.00 and the input it $189.00

i'm sure you needed anopther opinion on your build.

I checked with Dale Strobel on that ( he had a 205 for sale), he looked and said there was no adaptor to fit the 205 with a 4l80E

seems it's a big cost IF you can find an adaptor

I did some research on this awhile back when i was thinking about swapping one in. I am pretty sure the bolt pattern on a ford 205 is the same as your 4l80e. I also emailed Northwest Fabworks and asked if their 32 spline input can be used in a Ford case. Their answer was yes.
