I know some have their issues, but what doesn't . We're getting set up to put a 700r4 behind a 440 dodge in a 68 imperial.

Chrysler Imperial=4500# of great lakes pig iron hauling barge.

We are buying one already built by a reputable company. I believe a stage 3 trans from Bowtie overdrives is about 1300.00 outright. There are other companies.

Set up your TV cable right, Pick the way you want to switch the lockup, put a big oil cooler on it and go.

Go and look around in the knowledge base in the transmission info and articles. Lots of stuff there.

Later,
mikey

Are you running a stock or HP motor?

Towing?

Street , strip ?
