Default 4.7 six speed swap?

i never really noticed till today that they offer the 6 speed in other model rams other than the srt10. Is there a way to convert my 4.7 with an automstic to the 6 speed? has anyone done this? and what will be needed?

My guess is the cost would be super high. First the tranny has to mate up to the engine. The chances of that are slim. Then because the new trannys are computer controlled the whole computer would need to be replaced.

The idea is cool but it would be a very expensive job.

The 6spd that was offered stock behind the 4.7 is not the same transmission that was attached to the SRT10 trucks. Swapping the 6spd from a 4.7 to yours would be much simpler than going with the T56 from the SRT10. It would be a matter of collecting all the parts, everything should bolt up (minus cutting hole in floor). You might have to tune the computer as well or swap to a computer from a manual trans truck.

I knew the SRT10 T56 was diff, i meant the 4.7s with the 6 speed trans. so if i was to get everything from a 6 speed 4.7 it would be bolt on all but the floor? what about the 3.7L v6s with the 6 speed? will that stuff work too or is it all diff engine to engine?

I believe its the same between 3.7-4.7l transmissions.
There should be a hole marked in the floor. I'm not sure what all you will need though.

The same auto is holding up behind the new Hemis which have a whole lot more hp/tq than your engine does.
