Well, for my $, here's the direction I'm going:
The "Quadzilla" was brought to my attention in another thread. My own research on the company - PATC - indicates that these guys really stand behind their work, and have had VERY minimal problems/returns. In talking to Don at PATC about my MH, a '77 Argosy 20', he felt like the Quadzilla would fit my needs, since I indicated no problem with having to manually shift up and down (In "traffic", you'd only be going up and down between 1st, 2nd, and 3rd anyway); alternately, one could go with the "Level 2" version of the 4L80E and use the standalone electronic shift computer kit for same. . .
Don indicated that he was not aware of anyone making a shift computer kit to mate a (newer) Allison X-mission to a noncomputer engine, FWIW - anyone want to chime in on this?
