I am about to take this plunge. just need extra money. Suncoast has done this conversion on a 2000 VE truck. I am hoping to be the first 5.9 with their new comp 68rfe trans. The problem is that the 5.9 computer cannot read the comp program so B&G and H&S are working together to get the program written on a 5.9 Black maxx.
Comp trans $6200
Black Maxx with trans tune $1200+
torque converter $1500
07.5 shifter and electronics ?? not sure of cost yet
its not cheap and people are right they are not that strong if you are planning on racing or sled pulling. Suncoast thinks I am crazy to get rid of my 48re but I want an extra gear betwwen 3-4 and a double OD so its all worth it to me!
