The 6R80 transmission will bolt directly to all Modular and Coyote Ford engines and can be adapted to virtually any vehicle combination relatively easily, with a variety of parts available to simplify the transmission swap. It is an excellent choice for a performance upgrade or when swapping from a manual to automatic transmission.
This transmission has been largely avoided or ignored in the past due to a stand alone control system not being available. Now, the Quick 6 makes it possible for you to realize all of the benefits of the 6R80 in your vehicle.

6R80 Transmission Features and Benefits
Offers six forward speeds, with gear ratios of 4.17, 2.34, 1.52, 1.14, 0.87, and 0.69:1. The US-produced Ford 6R80 transmission is based on the robust ZF 6HP26 design, which has been used by automakers world-wide for over 14 years. Enhancements were added by Ford to further improve the transmission, including the addition of a ratchet-style low one-way clutch, and removal of the internal TCU for the 2011 model year, easily enabling stand-alone control. The 6R80 has already been field-proven to accept up to 1000HP in stock form, with only ECU tuning. With aftermarket components, the 6R80 will likely handle much more power. Stock applications already employ a multi-plate torque converter clutch, enabling greater power handling in lockup. Despite having 6 forward gears, the transmission is only slightly larger and heavier than light-duty four-speed automatics, such as the 4L60E and 4R70W.

I contacted US Shift to see if anything was in the works and they were in the middle of Quick 6 development. I stayed in regular contact with Jake, and one day the Quick 6 became a reality. I was offered a Beta Tester slot and I jumped at the opportunity. This turned out to be a great experience. There were a couple of hiccups at first, but Karl was right there to work through it. Once we got the initial settings worked out, I began adjusting the tune. This time, I was able to take full advantage of the Quick 6 software (no constant-pressure valve-body). It was very easy to navigate and any questions I had were immediately answered. I spent a lot of time perfecting the programming to my liking.Read More..
I wanted to thank you all for your amazing product. I purchased a Quick 4 for my built GM 4L80E in January of 2017. I finally finished my truck. The shifts are perfect. Could not ask for a better product. The use of a Laptop makes the shift points even better. Thanks again.Read More..
I purchased a Quick 4 transmission controller to replace the [competitor's] controller in my 1970 Chevelle. I had been running the [competitor's] unit for several years and it worked OK, but was a royal pain to program and did not offer multiple tables like the Quick 4 does. My wife was not fond of riding in my Chevelle because it shifted so hard, which was what I wanted. The Quick 4 allows me to have a shifting profile for the wife, one for me, and an additional two to use for whatever. With the flip of a switch or the turn of a knob, I can switch between the tables and please my wife or myself.Read More..
