200R4 with 455 Pontiac?

Hi Guys,

I was talking with a tranny shop who came recommended by some muscle car people I know about a new tranny for my 68 Firebird. I would like to get an od gear so my engine isn't always at 4k crusing down the highway.

Anyway, he said the only od tranny that would bolt up to a Pontiac engine is the 200R4 and it's not strong enough for a 455 with some horsepower. He said the only way to go is to get the GearSplitter gizmo. Is this true? What the heck are the racers using?
