yes. im going to use a streetfighter trans thats like the original C4, but it is able to handle around 500hp. the 347 im putting in dynos at 400 and around 450 torque. but the key thing to my gearing will be an overdrive unit made by a company called gear vendor. its a simple bolt on to the trans that replaces the tail section. it splits each gear and makes the 3 speed into a 6 speed and keeps the rpms up when it shifts where the power band is. it can be shut off and on with a button on the shifter. they use them on dragsters and losts of drag cars. the rear end gear will depend on the size of tire i use and what i want that final gear to run at.
guys on the maverick forums are runnin a 4.10 rear gear and still cruise at 80mph with about 2500rpms. it really allows you get the entire low and high end the way it works. its expensive, but this is my fun car until i die so im going to make it exactly what i want it to be. maybe next year ill have it all together. still need to get disc brakes and rebuild the front end.
