TH400 swap

Has anyone done this? Doesnr seem too complicated. Pinion angle seems to be the pita.

Swap into what? Why would pinion angle be any kind of problem? The eng./ trans. mounts are set up to obtain satisfactory pinion angle in any swap, anyhow.

One of the members named WAR HORSE just completed a TH400 swap. He has a thread in this forum called 2003 Cobra, or something like that. If you PM him, possibly he can answer any questions you may have.

I think the TH400 is a longer transmission, which would change the pinion angle.

The TH400 is an already strong transmission that can be built to handle very high horsepower. It is especially suited for drag race applications.

So can the 4R70/4R75. Unless you need over 900hp I'd just go with one of those built by Silverfox or someone like that. Or if you need more you can go with an AOD since you'll be needing a scattershield anyway at that power level and its easy for a builder to modify the AOD to fit the 4.6L.

Just because I give you advice, doesn't mean I know more than you. Its just means I've done more stupid ****.
