    I'd sure like one but no way am I financially viable (read retired) to put that much out. Even though I'm way up in miles, the truck still looks and runs great and I don't see alot of big issues so I'll keep doing what I'm doing... Tickling 1000 lb/ft though... WOW!

    Working around what I have left of the farm (18 acres). Doing some significant building rehab and repurpose. Keeping busy and also taking it slower now. I'm not able to keep the old pace any more.

    God, this is so impressive. I wish I could wait to get a '17, but I'll have to settle for a measly 765ft/lbs on my new work truck, LOL. That and $10k+ off sticker on a lot of them helps too...

    They make that small case for motorhomes. It mounts up to the driveshaft. Lowers RPM'S. Works well.

    That would be a gear vendors, and they won't sell one to go behind an allison. It's actually a laycock overdrive unit that Volvo used back in the 70's and 80's. It can hold a tremendous amount of torque in forward, but it cannot handle engine braking, hence why they won't sell one to go behind an allison(grade braking would trash one in short order).

    OK. That's the one. They go behind a diesel motorhome and work well.

    Heres a cutaway picture of it. Looks to be ALOT of changes. The biggy is the catalyst mounted directly to the turbo, and you can also see they moved the crank reluctor to the rear on the crank similiar to that of an ls.

    Mercedes and volvo have had major problems in the past from the direct mounted cat system. Hopefully the problem is figured out.

    Cool article. No more gears in the Allison. Still 6, just stronger.
