Is the Aisin better than the 68RFE?

The 68RFE is not nearly as robust as the Aisin in any way, shape, or form. They are two totally different transmissions. The difference is the Aisin has a much deeper First (3.75:1) and Second (2.0:1) to maximize the 6.7L’s torque delivery for more low-end pulling power.

Is the Aisin transmission worth it?

The Aisin is a much smoother transmission, unloaded or loaded. It also runs cooler when towing heavy. It doesn’t have the quirkyness on downshifts that the 68 does. It can handle a lot more input torque(which means better for adding power in the future).

How can you tell the difference between a 68RFE and Aisin transmission?

All you have to do is open up the hood: If your yellow dipstick handle is on the right side of your engine (the driver’s side), you’re likely looking at a vehicle with an Aisin transmission. If your dipstick is just to the left of your engine, you’re most likely dealing with the 68RFE.

What’s the difference between AS68RC and as69rc?

A simple way to understand the relationship between the elder AS68RC (used from model years 2007.5 to 2012) and the latter AS69RC (used from 2013 to present) is to think of the AS69RC as an evolved, strengthened and updated version of the horrendous AS68RC.

Which is better the Aisin or the 68RFE?

A final benefit to the 68RFE that may be relevant to some consumers is it’s fast shift speed compared to the Aisin. This is because the 68RFE does not necessitate as much of a fuel de-rate during shifts to facilitate a safe and properly timed clutch to clutch transition. For more information on “fuel de-rate”, keep reading!

Is the 68RFE a reliable all in one transmission?

Despite all of the impending doom the 68RFE and it’s abysmal valve body bring forth, it is a powerfully reliable transmission after being properly built. But, in stock form, it cannot hold much more than factory power. In fact, it just simply crumbles.
