Maybe hair brained idea, or something awesome
 
Has anyone heard of an after market paddle shifter kit for a 3rd gen truck? Would it even be possible to use with the tcu in them or would it just be asking to burn up the tranny? If it were possible I think it would be a killer addition and make driving around town quite abit more fun:LOL:

It would be pretty awesome.. But I think it would result in the tranny becoming an enemy instead of your friend. Wish it would be something simple.. but probably a lot more to it.

That was my initial thought but the worst that can happen is I continue to drive like normal best case is they make a kit and my daily driving becomes epic

The trans portion of the tuning doesn't allow for it. If you could find a way to adapt an LX TCM somehow, or use the programming from it?

Kamanhart 10-09-2013 03:18 PM

So that raises the next question, using a trinity per say would you be able to load an LX TCM tune and upload that into the trucks computer, and being that i have an 05 with all the trans options does that make it any more advantageous.

I know of someone with an SRT10 RC in Europe that switched to an auto from the Tremec and did paddle shifters, came out nice from what I've read but $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Well hell thats a dream crusher for someone on a college budget :LOL: but still gotta keep looking at the chance something has come up

HemiLonestar 10-09-2013 06:29 PM

LOL anything major you want to do to one of these (and have it work right) is gonna crush that kinda budget....
