What tranny to use with the I6

Yes I do understand the issues with the 4L80E I have one in my trans am.It is a huge tranny, and yes the parasitic losses are huge. I am shooting for 500 hp and 500 ft/lb of torque in my ultimate goal. I love the SM465 muncie, it would probably handle all I can give it, but the ratios don't work, To get a decent top end speed I will need to go to a numerically low rear end. An OD unit solves the problems and gives me a good off the line and a decent top end speed. I know there are OD units around but they are pricey....I will make the decision when I get to that point

Thanks guys
