CRApex replied to C/K Man's topic in 6.6L Gas V8 & HD Transmission Powertrain (L8T/MYD)Agree, the 10spd will be great and has been great paired to the Duramax. When I read the "I wanna stick with the 6spd" comments I can only imagine how they will look back and think how premature their comments were. The 10spd being paired with the l8t has proven itself paired to the Duramax and will make everyone forget about the 6spd really quick. I have always purchased diesels but the addition of the Allison branded 10spd paired with the gas motor might get me thinking about trying the gas next time around.
The 10spd being used is not the Ford 10spd, it's the same version that has proven itself in the current HD Duramax. I personally would never go back to the 6spd Allison after having the 10spd, its that good IMO. Price increase is worth it in my mind.
The 10 spd will be MUCH better and more reliable. Our gas HD's for my business get worked and the weak spot has been the tranny's. I suppose for the average guy using them as a daily driver and towing on the weekend they are fine but for me, this is great move putting the 10spd with the gas motor. The 6.6 gas motor has been great. It would be interesting to come back after a year of the 10spd paired with the gas and read the comments from those thinking this is a bad move.
L8T not immune from issues. BOTH of our 2020 6.6 gas trucks were down, one for 2weeks and the other for 3 waiting for parts. It happens. My Duramax also had the Def heater issue last year and was down 2 weeks, no issues since.
