Had a lengthy conversation with Russell Drake [[email protected]
] about this. $1000 for the harness. Then you just need a trans, an electronic shifter (not the rotary) and since the 8HP70 has a flange you'll need a custom 2 piece or slip driveshaft for 2wd (4wd is an easier swap). Most likely need a manual PCM flash since the PCM would probably lose it's sh!t without the trans inputs. Definitely not a bolt in, but not difficult; just a bit pricey altogether. Considering the interior swap I just did (and it's getting into boating season) the RFE will have to last a bit longer before I drop an easy $2000 or more. Last email I got from them:
You are receiving this email because you have contacted me about an 8hp standalone setup. I will have 8 of these in next week and depending on the day they show up I may be able to ship late next week or late the following week. I am taking orders first come first serve. I know some of you have already contacted me and it is just to much of a list to keep track of. So here we go. I need your billing and shipping address. Your phone number. And what engine, and control unit you are using for the engine. Ie Mopar Crate or factory take out of salvage car that is being reprogrammed for standalone use. Basically factory computers that have factory CAN messages as a production car would have. I also can support older 5.7 and 6.1 CAN as in a lx platform with the NAG1. I would need to know that. Also the shifter wiring is for the T handle floor shifter, not the Rotory knob. If you send me a Rotory knob connector I can install it on the harness for you at no extra charge.
Again, first come first serve. I will do my best and I will not have a huge lead time on getting more. I will reorder probably next week for the next batch. So dont panic if you do not get in on these. If you have any questions now or upon receiving an invoice please do not hesitate. Price will be 1000.00..

And just to make things more interesting, there is a shop down in FL (Hellraiser Performance) that has figured out how to do successful 8HP90 swaps (in place of a 70). So I imagine once swapped, if you're making huge power you can swap to one of those (if necessary) fairly easily.
