    If you get one of those Abbott ERA boxes Electronic Ratio Adapter (ERA) you can use the signal from your ABS and trigger the ERA box to adjust the ratio for the speedo to read correctly. It has dip switches to allow proper adjustment. This is how I did it prior to my 6R80 conversion and it worked flawlessly.

    Mine is off front abs. Used my hand held to correct it. I got it within 1 mph of gps so calling it good.

    Took the car out yesterday for the first time since the swap. Damn it's nasty. I thought I was going to use the "Mantronic" mode to race. I am going to use that so I don't piss off my neighbors coming home at 3-5am.

    So to answer any questions on how it drives. It drives like a MVB that you don't have to shift. I have it set on 6krpm medfirm shifts. And it's just that. in every gear, just nasty, loud. Sounds like a damn dodge now. The blower noise is just awesome.

    My conclusion. If you want factory shift points for going to the grocery store go get the coyote ecu set up. If you want a snarling beast... Go with the us shift.

    And if anyone with the factory ford cruise control. Hook up the "mantronic" and 2 pushes of the CC off button engages it. Set Accel button upshifts and the coast button downshifts. In any gear so putting around the neighborhood you won't be at 5-6rpm's. Which your neighbors will like.

    Here's an in car vid from mine.
    Need a new go-pro. Mine are MIA. Got a buddy of mine to ride along last weekend and he was using his phone.
    It was 100 degrees out but you get the idea.
    6R80 FTW!

    Just finished my swap and the car is a different animal. If you guys end up using the Stifflers trans mount than you won’t need the following parts

    Isolator trans mount. BR3Z-7E373A
    Isolator Mount Bolts. W715936*S437... 3 total.
    Isolator Mount Nuts. W520113*S440.. 2 total.

    Since you don't seem like you can comprehend this question/answer. Seeing how you have asked it a couple times now. And have gotten the answer.

    You should install everything then measure. Your local drive shaft shop should be able to put something together cheaper the buying the MGTM which wont fit, then having it cut down the 1/2" needed.

    So there's your answer. Which I answered on page 7 post 136#

    With it being a fairly new maybe someone else has kept the IRS an know of a driveshaft that bolts right up kinda how Paul an Michael an others mentioned that they had success using production driveshaft from 11-14. It appears I'm the only one who still has the IRS who is doing this build currently everyone else has solid rear axle, I know about custom driveshaft tlk to several places but they are saying several weeks out to do it, I was seeing can I get something sooner that bolts right in or needs little modification to accomplish.

    Do the correct measurements and call PST.
    I had a custom CF shaft with optional SFI delivered in less than a week.

    For guys with 3:73’s and a 26 inch tire for your speedometer output in shiftware i have my set at .299 and it’s accurate +/- 1mph. Thought I would throw it out there.

    Just a brief update on mine.
    1st time to the track since the 6R80 swap. Shift points were too low (only 6,000 rpm) and I forgot my laptop so I couldn't change them.
    My car only has subframe connectors so it twists like a pretzel and is unloading on launch so it's spinning.
    But got some data and have made some changes for the next planned track outing.

    If you drive on the street a lot I would recommend the 6r80
