I've also heard that the '97 and up 46REs are better than the previous years. Has anyone noted a trend that the '97s and up are better/break less??

My '97 has had no problems that I know of (I picked it up with 58k on it, and I'm at 105k now). I don't know whether to leave well enough alone, or try to get a beefed up tranny before I start the gearing and HP build up.

97+ trucks use a 46 rh instead of the older 46 re

Actually, only the '94-95.5 do...because the '96+s use the RE. I have a '97 and it has an RE and just about every other '96 owner I have seen on here has the RE as well. But '94-95 should be the ones with the RH.

As has been stated several times before, his site is wrong on the dates. If you check the build codes and the types of tranniies, the RE came into play in '96. Only 94-95 have the true RHs. :bigthumb:

I’m hearing from a couple of people that said the 47RE does bolt up to a 5.9L Gas, I’m thinking either the bell housing is either modified or the internals are swapped

Sorry for dragging up an old thread ...

That is incorrect , the bellhousing pattern of the 47 is not the same as the 46. The completes guts of the 47 will drop right into a 46 case . The major differences are the planets, the amount of clutches in the front drum , the number of clutches in the OD unit and the valvebody. Also note there are differences between valve body and govenors between the RH and the RE so don't try cross swapping ,specifically the valve body and the OD unit.

You can swap all the internals from the 47 in the 46 but you'll want to retain the 46 vavlebody because the shift points in a diesel are different than a gas engine.

If I wanted to beef up a 46 I would just get a billet front drum and pack 5 clutches in it and swap on the Diesel/V10 OD unit, otherwise the 46/47 is based on the 727 ... you can use some of the 727 go fast parts... and they are good trans to begin with.
