I personally think the c4 will be faster and more reliable in the future when I get more horses.but the problem is I have 4 11 gears in it what cause the c4 to tach 3000 rpms doing 55 which kills me in gas.so I'd like some insight on which people would recommend to go.also I am getting the motor rebuilt and I was wondering how costly it would be to stroke it or if it would just be better to go to a 351.
a c4 is essentially an aod without overdrive. so really they arent much stronger than a t5 or aod if any, unless built. i would definitly switch if you are worried about mpgs.
how about a stroked 351?
