Aod & Aode upgrade tip.

Besides the common shift kit one thing that can be done to improve your aod or aode is to add a extra clutch plate and steel plate in the intermediate drive assembly. Most aods' have only 3 plates in the intermediate drive assembly. The mustang has 4, the difference is the main backing plate that they sit on. If you view the attachment you will see that the plate that I am refering to is numbered as 17. By changing to the mustang style plate you can then add a clutch and steel plate. Most rebuild kits come with extra plates and clutches. If your car is equiped with only three plates you will have one clutch and 3 plates left over. This upgrade will give extra life to your tranny and I would recommend it especialy if you like to hot rod your vic a little. There is also options of adding more clutches in the 2-3 and od drum assy. But you would need to change the snap rings and such. The kit to do this is a little expensive but it would be worth it.
