Swapping a 68RFE for a Built 47RE

Posted on 10 May 2015

The 47RE swap has become popular for street and competition applications on 6.7L Cummins trucks.  With two less shifts and complete tuning control, it's been a favorite of racers for years.

Street Diesel Power has assembled a package to swap a 47RE behind any 2007.5-2015 6.7L Cummins.  These packages are designed for going from a 68RFE to a 47RE.  You can choose two power levels to support - 800 hp or 1000+ hp.  

For 800 hp, we include a billet flex plate, billet input shaft, custom Five Star, billet output, deep pan and standalone controller.  For 1000 + hp, we add a billet intermediate shaft to the mix for increased reliability.  ATS will accept a 68RFE core in exchange for a 47RE.  This means you do not have to find a 47RE core or spend extra money on one.  

The standalone will ship with a base file to run the 47RE.  From that point, you have complete control over shift points, lockup, line pressures and can program different files for racing, towing or daily driving.  The package does not include a "manual" flash.  However, MCC or EFI-Live can install a manual flash into the ECM.  

If you have a Cab and Chassis truck or one with a manual G-56, we can still help!  Message us for details on putting a built 47RE behind a 4500/5500 Ram or pickups with a manual G-56.

    Ats will not swap core for core, they said they are limited on there 47s, unless you buy a new 47 from them, they will not take your 68. Anyone else you could think of that would swap core for core?

    Hi Dustin!

    The swap ranges from $9400-$10,300 depending on an 800hp or 1000+hp setup. The 47RE is controlled by the ATS Standalone controller. It mounts either in the cab or engine bay. But, the control are handled autmatically via tuning with a PC. You customize the shift points, lockup, etc., and the transmission will shift that way. If you want to make changes, just plug in you laptop, make the adjustments and you’re back on the road.

    How much does the swap kit you carry cost? And, I’m assuming the stand alone unit is in cab mount and controlled manually? Thank you
