How do you plan to get all of that power to the ground, you better be thinking DD Clutch or Built Auto way before sticks

Auto I HIGHLY recomend Goerend Transmissions they are great LIFETIME WARRANTY on the Torque Converter and Dave is a pretty awesome guy!!!!

Manual I like the guys up at South Bend, they help out pretty good and have great products, and hold up pretty good

both of them will sell you what you need and at a good price...no bull**** and beating around the bush
