Tremec 4050 install

Has anybody done a Tremec 4050 install into a K model pickup? Silver Sport has put together a kit that will convert your truck to a manual shift retaining the NP205 Transfer Case. Has anybody on this forum done this conversion and if so, how did it go? They have quoted me over 6000 dollars for the complete kit. Pricey conversion but there is a lot to swap if you are starting with an automatic. Thanks, Jack

Interesting...not sure if it's over $6000 interesting , but that would be sweet...high torque rating, low 1st..
I dont recall seeing one done..

Curious what they are using to convert the 205 so it will bolt on. Different output? conversion sleeve?

Re: Tremec 4050 install

Not sure. I have looked at a couple of conversions I can't remember which ones required what without revisiting them. I just swapped my TH350 for a 700R4. There was quite a few issues to deal with to make it fit but I eventually got them worked out. That required a sleeve. It turned out to be a nice clean install, but I just can't get used to an automatic. It feels sloppy and loose to me. Maybe I will get used to it.
