    Yes they are very different transmissions, but I don't think one was better than the other as far as shift quality. They all shift like trucks lol.

    In my experience they only "feel" heavy when you're installing them. The NV4500 is a pretty popular choice to put behind a 6.0L. If you have an NV3500 now, you may not notice a difference in shifting.

    Ok, well if you want to go ahead with the 03 hydraulics and the matching clutch/flywheel I don't see a problem there. You could probably keep your current clutch really.
