64 Falcon 2dr HT

Wanting to know who has some guidance on an auto tranny that will support about 380HP. Wanting to move away from 4-speed. What is my best choice (C4, C6, or??), and what do I need to be concerned with to avoid problems. Any tips on 'stall speed'? Rear end is 456 posi. Are there problems in what ratio's the tranny needs to have. How would be the best combination for making it a 1/4 mile car? Thanks!!

I would run a C4, they are fairly cheap and can take a ludicrous amounts of power. Why run a C6 unless you are running a BB Ford, it takes more hp to push, plus is weights more.

Yep, I agree,the c4 will handle the power,but if you want to seriously race,go with a pro built converter with high stall,say 3500 or better,depends on the engine you're using.

An engine built for hp in the higher rpm range,needs a converter that will launch you in that range.

One built for low end torque can use lower stall.

Hey, Welcome to the site.

A built C-4 is the ticket.

But until you figure how to "hook up" the rear tires.... it wont make much difference.
