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.
