Anyone purchased a gate shifter from him recently?
I'm swapping a 4.3 w/ 4L60E into my s10 soon; my current motor is a 2.2 w/ 5speed, so I can't rig it off a column shifter (and i have an aluminum dash already)
Will it work with a stock valve body, and do they make reverse manual valvebodies for the 4L60E? I plan on calling him today.
Thanks,
Alex.

**Edit**
just called: no answer, no message service.... this is an old thread, are they still in business?

Well, called again 10 minutes later, and they picked up. Answered all my questions too! $250 for a gate shifter, $350 for a manual valve body, installed. I'll probably just run the shifter with the stock valve body for now; eventually I'll swap out for a 700r4, which accepts the same shifter.

Yes, we have them on a 700 and a 4L80 in our own fleet. I get them from CPT instead of Art Carr inc. The Art Carr company rubbed me pretty raw a couple years ago and CPT has been pretty good with us. We have had to modify/tune the 3spd and 4 spd shifters to make them work just right, mostly in adjusting the throw on the transmission arm to make it line up right with the gate.

Also looking for a gate shifter for an 03 Ram 2500 with a Hemi.

45RFE or 545RFE
We were able to adapt a regular ol' C6 shifter to our 545rfe. Of course, being fully electronic it doesn't actually shift anything but it moves the lever to the right place.

Ahhhh awesome!! Thanks a ton John! Were there any major speed bumps in doing it that I should be prepared for? Or any secrets? haha

Thanks again!

The throw of the shifter was a little long so we had to weld an extension on the shift lever on the transmission to make it a little longer, and we had to file down the edge of one of the gates on the shifter, but it was pretty easy.

I tried the phone number you posted and it's not a valid number, I am not able to find Transwerks anywhere in a phone listing or on the web. I have a customer that really wants to get a hold of them do you have any other info.
Thanks
Steve
