But the biggest issue would be the PCM. The gear ratios for the 66RFE are different from the 65RFE, so if you just hook it up as is, you will blow gear ratio error faults immediately (and continually). It would be unusable for that reason. And I don't know of any way to get the PCM reprogrammed to the new ratios.
What about the ATS copilot. Would it help serve as a solution to the problem. I was thinking of adding the new 8speed in a few years?
