    toploader vs c4 auto

    But the renegate shifter on the toploader was a lot of fun esp for track n hill climb stuff ️

    toploader vs c4 auto

    I jus changed over to a C4 from a toploader mate.. I've got a 393ci 600hp n wouldn't be real cruiser friendly with a manual - depends what u like I guess but with big cam n horsepower I def think auto.. took me ages to change over

    AODE into xe

    I saw a smik XE at Phils auto in Newcastle few weeks ago running a decent 351' and AOD but box was out as apparently it was leaking n it's common on them.. I had one behind a 68' mustang 302 Windsor n was sweet I jus don't think they handle huge power real well

    Pistons - 351 crank, 302 rods

    I've had the exact same set up for my 351' n built it in 2005 and havng had an issue at all ! Made 340rw hp n goes pretty hard with top loader ,9' and 750dp on it
