Transmission/ rear end

I want to buy a tranny and posi rear end for my next buy. I was looking at my Jegs mag and the street fighter tranny from tci is the only one that actually showed what engines it will fit. How can i tell what will fit my engine? I have a 289 w/ auto. I was looking at about $800 to spend. How much would it be to install it? Whats the difference between c4, c5, and c6? I have to buy a torque converter too right? on the tci it says its manual and automatic, what does that mean? Anyone that has the catalog its on pg136. I also want a posi 9". They're about $400. How much to install? Thanks

I got a new tranny not too long ago with a manual/auto valve body. From what I've had explained to me the manual function is this: You can put the car in drive and it will work just like an automatic. But if you start from 1st, it will stay in gear until you shift up. This way you can shift up through the gears manually, say if you were racing (or whatever). It is a convenient option to have. Good luck.

Do you need a clutch then? If not, I thought all auto transmitions were like that where you can just shift by moving from first to second and then drive or however many gears you have.

No clutch is required. It is the valvebody in the tranny that is modified. You'll still set-up everything like a regular automatic with a torque converter. I don't know if all other transmissions are the same. That is just how mine works.
