while I agree it is his car so do with it as you like.
Isn't the 700r4 an automatic? Or was it converted to manual? Either way I've heard those transmissions are crap. Just what I've heard. I've built a 327 once which was fun but it had a TH350 behind it.I'm currently rebuilding a chevy small
Block 350. I have a 700r4 manual transmission. Is this possible to fit in my 96 gt? 4.6l
They have 700r4's in manual. Anyways, how did the th350 pare up with it?runvsofthisbull said:while I agree it is his car so do with it as you like.

+1DieselStang said:I would try my hardest to convert your non-pi engine to a PI with new heads and intake manifold for 1500. You could use CAI and exhuast bolt ons but without the PI heads and intake your not going to see near the power increase in basic bolt ons as you would with the PI heads and intake. Power increases without the PI heads and intake will be very discouraging and not give you as much bang for your buck. The PI (Performance Improved) heads and intake I speak of can be found on 99-04 gt mustangs and a few parts suppliers carry them as a kit. Bolt on mods you could do before the conversion to notice big gains would be rear gears and driveshaft. After you have the PI conversion I can recomend further mods if you wish and I wont steer you wrong.
$1364.99 for the conversion. Knock yourself out!
Your budget will not cover it. I'd just built the motor, sell it, and buy a 4.6 or a 5.0.Well here's my story so far. I have a 96 mustang gt with 92k on it. It's my daily. I have a small block 350 that I'm currently rebuilding and decided i put it in my car. I just needs a transmission and I don't really know which one to get. I'm trying to keep the engine and tranny budget to 800-1100. So i'm not exactly buying brand new ****. I may need a little help or a sort of walk through on how to get it in.
Disgrace.A little advice sell the 350 and get a 4.6 it's a digraph to even think about doing that
Very true that chevy engines are producing more power per dollar than the ford engines with a few exeptions, the old saying there is no replacement for displacement still stands. However swaping a chevy engine into a ford still requires more money than most have available for mods and simple performance bolts ons that would give better performance than a stock engine swap is capable of chevy or otherwize.You people are crazy u can build a Chevy cheaper than a ford anyday and make more hp . Ford cost alot of money to get hp . You can make motor mounts to enable yourself to sit it in the K member to save yourself money or. Get some plates . If u had the cash u could get a upr member that accepts it . I have actually done these swaps and I do them all myself . For your tranny I would go find a 350 turbo or 400 turbo or if u can get lucky a powerglide all very good Trans and will withhold alot of hp . You will have to do some modifications on the driveshaft . Honestly your budget doesn't cover the cost to do any swap but don't give up push through It my man . A 4.6 motor IMO is a big disgrace they are slow and weaker than a 5.0 and won't hold as much hp before the block cracks and I hate efi so I would go carb will save you on the wiring . So I say just do what you can for now and finish up later . Just I would not go with the crappy 4.6
