Question AOD Rating

Anyone out there know how much power an AOD trans out of a '86 Cougar can handle ? Are there any recommended upgrades, apart from the usual shift kit and torque converter ?

Thanks

Thumbs up

-Baumann Engineering- offers service upgrades to make the AOD a little more reliable for hi-performance operation.

There are several others (including a one piece input shaft) that offer upgrades. It makes a great street trans.

As of right now I am putting an AOD into my mustang. I called art carr transmissions and asked them what they had to offer in terms of hipo rebuild kits so my tranny wouldn't let go...i was a little nervous cuz I heard these won't take too much abuse. They sold me this super rebuild kit for $270. It has higher friction clutches and bands , wider OD band and a single input shaft. The main reason AODs don't like a lot of power is because of their 2 weak input shafts that will shatter behind a lot of power. THey put these in so they will lock up in 3rd and 4th gear for better gas mileage. With only one shaft it wont lock up and it will be much stronger. You have to buy non-lockup specific converters too. It should be good for over 400hp. shift kits will stiffen everything up and make it slip less too, so its a good idea to get one of those. I'm not really sure how much they will handle stock but, i know they put them in F-150s. I'll take a wild stab in the dark and say 300hp.
