Russell at Sound German Automotive has the 8 speed stand alone up and running. I think this is big news for the modern transmissions, thought I would share....Here is his post from facebook...

At last I am happy to announce that the 8hp standalone is up and running. Not only will this allow the factory tcu to operate on a completely standalone setup but it will also be able to work with older factory ECUs for swaps with older CAN messaging. The new crate kit ecus will be supported as well. There is a bit more work to do and harnesses to make etc before product is ready to sell. But the hard part is over.

This is awesome news. I have a Nag1 behind a 5.7 in my 70 GTX. I am using a transmission computer designed abnd programmed by Russell and it is awesome! Great news for the 8 speed swap folks!

Wonderful news. The 8 speed sounds like an awesome transmission.

Gear ratios:
1 4.71
2 3.14
3 2.10
4 1.67
5 1.29
6 1:1

7 .84
8 .67

R 2.65

"The transmission can be used in a mild or full hybrid setup, and allows input torque up to 900 Nm, or 664 lb-ft (8HP90) — high enough for any Chrysler gasoline engine, not quite enough for the Cummins diesel."

Sweet, but taking a look at the one in my charger it is huge! It's 30" long bell face to rear mount and still 9" tall at the mount.
