What transmission Muncie or TH400?

Im building a high compression 383 stroker with 9inch rear end w/4.11. But cant decide whether to go with a Muncie or a TH400! I have also heard that you can make T5's strong if i wanted a 5spd. So what are your opinions?

It's up to you! Do you want to shift or have it done for you?

muncies are over rated, unless your talking an M22 rock crusher, it's the only 1 of the 3 models that will hold up to any kind of power. depends on how much power you want and if you want to shift or not.

I love to shift myself but for quick off the line and durability it's hard to beat a well built automatic. Most of us can't shift as well as the machine.

dont buy an automatic.. unless your going for consistanticy.

m-22 is the only muncie that will hold up, ive shreaded a few m-20's n m-21's with only 525 ft lbs. and 3.90 rear gear.

a t-5 will shread internal gears with a few clutch drops @ 3500 rpms.
they wont hold up.

if you want a manual trans, find a ST-10.
