Where in Ontario are you located? This is a really cool swap indeed. I travel the province a fair bit, wouldn't mind giving you a hand or such. It's always good to make some local connections

Hmm... this sounds familiar. I have a feeling I have asked you this before the more I think about it.

You backing it up with the transmission that comes in the Escalade or shoehorning in an Allison?

haha I dont think a 4L65 would last behind a duramax.

You really dont have to do any "shoehorning" to fit an allison in. Its the taller radiator/intercooler stack that needs the "shoehorn". Not the allison.
