Default diesel/GM trans/fullsize ford tcase swap?

well got a big combo i'm trying to figure out if it will work/fit

engine wise i want to run a 4BT this trans is known to fit in a RBV but most people use the TH400 with it. I dont want the TH400 i want a newer 6 speed auto. Was planning on using a 6L90e with a standalone Speartech controller or the entire gen VIIIIII (or whatever the hell GM is up to PCM) main reason for this is the 6L90e carries a double overdrive and a much wider gear ratio


1st: 4.03:1
2nd: 2.36:1
3rd: 1.53:1
4th: 1.15:1
5th: 0.85:1
6th: 0.67:1
reverse: 3.06:1


1st 2.48
2nd 1.48
3rd 1.00
2.08 R

1st and 2nd on the 6l is beast for torque combined with a pretty basic 4bt i should have tons of get up and go for a 4.10 or even 3.73 rear end and 35"s. Also should yield 25-30MPG which is unheard of in this truck.

now the transfer case is a little more off the wall the 6L90e has a 34 spline output shaft and i have no idea what tcase was thinking a modded bw 1365e. or maybe the stock NP whatever out of a fullsize.

agh its alot of info to go through anyone have any other thoughts they want to throw out there and personal experiences?

some info on speartech

some info on the 4BT

just as a fyi the 6L90e is about the same size as a 4L60e and i know for a fact i have seen someone with a 4L80 and 4wd still...
