I am thinking of using an LPG turbo alloy head crossflow, AOD and an ed xr 6 disc brake lsd in my tc cortina.
You know how you try and conceive the best set up for your car and then go about trying to see if it's possible, well thats what I am doing now. Seeing if its possible. Now thats where you guys come in.
The turbo crossflow in cortina part is ok but I need to know if;
Is the AOD onto the crossflow possible? Is it an easy fit? What is required for the change? Has anyone done it before?
Will the AOD be compatible with the tailshaft of the cortina? Any other problems like trans tunnel clearance etc?
I really really want an overdrive so I can run some lower gears in the diff and still be able to highway cruise.
I am also looking in to the http://www.gearvendors.com/hrford3s.html
and although expensive, looks good, but does not have as tall an overdrive, .78 instead of the .67 for the AOD.
I live in Melbourne so are there any other places in melb that have AOD's for sale besides Trans Tough?
Are there any places that strengthen the AOD's in melb, as I will eventually be running about 300rwkw hopefully.
I have been to the art carr and baumann engineering sites. I may look at importing a strengthened Art Carr AOD if nothing similar is available in melb.
But first I gotta see if its feasable.
Any info is much appreciated.
