    I believe I posted a video of this transmission in a 3500 dually a while back. This Powerline transmission is different from the 8HP75 used behind the gasser in the HD trucks.
    Found the video:

    Interesting in that the speculation in this article stated that this transmission may NOT be a replacement in the 3500 as it may not be set up to take the over 1,000 lb. Ft. of torque available today in the new Cummins engine.

    With the expected delay of introduction and availability, it will probably be October/November before you really know.
