Automatic or later manuel???????

I've learned that the trans I have is specific to the cobra only (the 3650 5spd). with my 01 being an early iteration of it. Learned at the the track that the shift is s*&% after 6k. Which, is something I'm not all that excited about....which leads me to my question.....I'll be able to do this swap once....due to the depth of it, so, I want to make my choices wise ones.
I'm torn on which would be better of the 2. swap to a later 3650 (as found in later Mach 1s and terminators) or swap to a 4R70W automatic (as found in V6s/GTs)

I mainly drag race, so, to put that on the table. Look forward to hearing from you guys.

I look forward to hearing what you have to say.

Never heard of this issue before...but the Terminators came with a T56 (6 speed) not the 3650 as stated above.

Personally I prefer shifting gears, and if you're wanting a drag car there are much better platforms out there.

Re: Automatic or later manuel???????

True, terminators did not come with 3650s, simply getting straight to the point. I have an 01, which DID come with a 3650, an early iteration of it. Learned about this flaw/trait straight from a Tremec tech. After 6k, shift goes to sh*$. Hence my question.

He did say that later 03/04 Mach 1s came with revised 3650s which would be great doners. A little more high rev shift friendly. Transversely.....the 4R70W automatic that I have in my 01 V6 is also a solid platform......hence....my quandary.

IF you have any transmission needs I would contact D&D performance. Welcome to D&D Performance - The 5 & 6 Speed Experts!. They set me up with my full street/strip T-56 and I love it! Winter is the best time to have them do work too. I would call and talk to them, very knowledgeable! Especially if you plan to drag a lot!

Good choice! Let us know what your thinking about going with! If it where me and all I would be doing is going to the drags, I would go with some sort of built auto trans for more consistent drag times.

Good luck
