700r4?

Ok, I just got a call from a bud about a turbo 400 and the 700r4. Which would be the better of the two to get for a 69 chevelle? I'm not concerned with overdrive. The stall converters for a 700r4 seem to be alot more expensive.

If you are going to beat heavily on the car, or an high horsepower, say above 550 H.P., I would go with the turbo 400. If you have a steep gear, and the car is a cruiser, and you get on it once and awhile I would go with the 700R4. Chevelle's are heavy, and with the right convertor, and gearing the 700R4 has a steep 1st gear, to get the car moving. I feel 400,s are tougher, 700r4,s take more money to beef them up, and are more for a street machine.

The car has 4.10 gears and the motor has about 450 to 475hp I planned on putting a 3000 stall in it. It's a weekend driver, but it will see the track. I'm thinking the 400 because of durability and expenses?
