    At the end of the summer I'm going to have alot off money to blow, and well I'm starting research on mods. I want to build up the drivetrain mostly becuase I don't want to worry about failures. Well I'm thinking a fully strange rear end would work nicly I'd upgrade to a 9" if possible. But I want to research the tranny in my car I have the 4r70w and Want to know Whats the best of the best tranny for a streetcar that could handle lets say 750 HP? is their such a thing or does it get unstreetable? I don't need a transbrake exc. but I want a built 4 or 5 speed atuo with an overdrive I don't have to worry about busting. A few brands to reaserch would be nice. also I'm on about a 3000 dollar budget for the tranny.

    Thanks when It gets closer to that time of year around september I'll give them a call. How much do you think it would cost to send my tranny to them and have it completly gutted like I want or would I be better to just buy a brand new tranny and run this as a backup?

    I'm wondering now though for the amount of money I'd spend on this tranny I could have patriot stage II heads, crower cams, and some BBK valve covers with bbk LTs and a shorty H? I'm not sure. I wonder how the tranny rear end would hold all the gained horsepower?

    Any particular reason you're wanting to stay with the 4R70W?

    Nice avatar, btw.

    The 4r70W is a great tranny, there is in fact right now a transbrake being tested that will allow you to have the transbrake, but will also be able to leave the car full automatic. meaning no manual shifting. You will also not have fixed line pressure. There is currently not anything like this on the market. This would be for the enthusiast who wants a trans brake but doesn't want the manual shifting. Jeff Stafford is currently testing this unit....here is a launch pic in a car that makes about 260rwhp...... :eek:

    When i talked to my tuner about putting 31 spline strange axels in he said this:

    Now this guy is one of the best stang guys in NJ Wicked Motorworks

    He said that the strange axels were good for the track but were too brittle for street driving. He had me go with Moser.
    Saw you were doing rear and axels so just a heads up white96gt

    Shizz. To bad I'm not getting the money tell like september. I've gotta save my summer checks. I'm 16 so my weekly pay like triples over the summer. So The way I figure I should have somewhere in between 3500 and 4000 at the end of the summer to blow. I'll have fun!

    I'm still just shopping around trying to find the best bang for the buck. I don't know if I want Go or show right now. I'm only 16 and I might like a full SLP exhaust or a h-pipe/flowmaster setup with some new 17" saleens? or Weld prostars? can't decide.
    Really the only think I'm 100% about is I'm getting a tuner that way for prom next year I can limit the speedo and tech for prom night and the stupid parking dick! I'm still not sure I won't just park it myself. I don't know I'm might have more fun spending my money on some exhaust, wheels and a lowering kit like a drag kit. Anyone know how much a BBK Drag lunch kit lowers your car.

    all the drag kits i know of have stock hight. So have you seen the dude that parks your car kill it or something? I don't get it. I'm a valet and i never understood why everyone with a mustang thinks their cars are to good for me to park......especialy since mine is usualy nicer than theirs :dancing6:

    But on a lighter note, screw all that crap and just get a vortec. You can get the s trim kit for around 3500 dollars and that is deffinitly the best bang for the buck, that or nitros. But if i was you i would just get the vortec kit and keep it at 8 pounds or 10 pounds till you build things up.

    well I just got a nother job mowing a big azz yard on saturday afternoons and sundays and I will have about 2000 more know than I thought before. also I really want to go twin screw if I go FI because of the looks. I plan on having this car for a while and I want to do stuff right the first time. Also if I do get forced induction will the tranny/rearend/shortblock? handle the extra horses?
