My experiences were just the opposite.
Every one that I owned (about 6 in all) failed, behind stock or mildly built 302's.
I removed mine and tossed them in the scrap heap and replaced them with the C-6 transmissions. No problems with those I can assure you.
Nowadays they can be built to hold up, but back then they were just weak junk that wouldn't last behind stock engines, much less a heavily modified one.
I wouldn't run one on the street today just because you can get so much better gas mileage with an OD transmission.
