Re: Gearbox recomendations?
Rob Bertolacci runs an XB Falcon, with 504cube BB, C4 auto, and heaps of NOS. This car runs 8.9 all day every day, and is his daily driver as well. He is a regular at willowbank, and at the pro street shootout. So your C4 can handle the power, built right of course. Rob reckons that with that much grunt, the car is still very streatable, as i said, its his daily driver. I dont know the exact figures, but to push a full body XB down the strip in 8.9s, it would be a lot.
And if anyone has ever heard this car at idle, you would think it was a 351W with set of headers, and a stage 2 cam. Very nice package.
Also, as EBXR said, the AOD is a fantastic box if you want O/D, but is limited to about 800-900 HP
