6 Speed swap from 700R4
Im swapping my 700R4 out and putting a new 6 speed in. Although Im not much of a transmission guy. Im basicly going for 1/4 mile ET time (hwy milage also if possible), and wasnt to sure on three things, if a 26 spline 6 speed would swap easily with a 700R4, if a 3.27(1st), .76(6thOD) gear ratio or a 3.01(1st), .62(6thOD) (or smaller?) would be better, and im 50/50 on a richmond 6spd, or a borg-warner T56. Everything I read says they can both handle 450 ft/lbs of torque, even 'bullet proofed' which is about what my smallblock will be putting out. (425-450ft/lbs range) In any case, I realize I might have to do a little fabrication.
