    6R80 swaps are popping up left and right now. We need to get to work on getting a DCT from the new GT500 in a cobra

    Why not? Haha. That’d be badass. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love my 6R80 but damn a DCT would be wild

    If a shop is doing all the work. Your probably looking at double what Soap quoted. 95% of the time that shop is outsourcing the work.

    Your better off doing all the leg work yourself. And having a shop just do the install.

    Get a used 6r80, 300-500$. Then get power by the hour 1000hp kit-1000$ billet intermediate shaft and raybestos GPZ clutches/friction plates.
    A good dedicated trans shop should only charge 500$ or so, call around.

    So now you have 2k into the 6r80. and it should be good till around 1200rwhp.

    I used a one piece driveshaft from the 10-15 model and had it shortened and swapped rear yokes. That’s the expensive route though.

    Go to a local, reputable DS shop and have one made. They'll need what yokes you want, what material you want, and they'll give you some measurements they'll need. I had one built for my lightning when i broke the stock shaft. It was about the same cost as a new oem one, without the wait.

    IMG_4494.JPG I tried but the way the shifter cable connects in the rear of the shifter it will take some fab, more than I wanted to do. I went with the stock shifter removed the top plastic piece that shows what gear you are in and than used the leather boot to hide it.
