need advice on a tranny

i am swapping my c4 auto on my 65 mustang fastback to a toploADER...I AM GONNA BUY THE TRANS FROM DAVID KEES TOPLOADERS AND NOT SURE IF I SHOULD GET A ALUM. CASE OR NODULAR IRON CASE..IM NOT INSTALLING IT, A LOCAL SHOP IS AND I DONT RACE THE CAR SO THE DIFFERANCE IN WEIGHT REALLY WOULDNT MATTER TO MUCH. I DO HAVE A ALUM. BELLHOUSING THOUGH. CAN I BOLT UP A NODULAR IRON TRANS CASE TO A ALUM. BELLHOUSING??? THE DIFFERANCE IN PRICE IS $100 MORE FOR AN ALUM.( PROBLABLE MAKE THAT BACK IN SHIPPING COST). WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK?

I wouldn't even consider the aluminum case unless this was a road race car and I needed to save weight. The iron case is much stronger and more reliable in the long run. Doesn't matter what the bellhousing is made of, you can bolt it up.
