3 gears and a torque converter suck
I have a 1980 Bronco with a 400M that was balanced, blueprinted, and put together with all the works. I am pretty sure it is pushing near 300 hp and 400 ft lbs of torque as it runs low 16 second 1/4 miles at 86 mph with a factory 3.00 to 1 rear diff and a C6 auto. I want to get better 60 ft times than my current 2.7 second best thus forcing me to get lower gears in the rear, however my fuel economy already sucks. Is there an overdrive trans, manual or auto that can handle the power of my engine and bolt to the big block (351M, 400M, 429, 460) bell housing? I know the E4OD might but it is computer controlled and I prefer manual transmissions anyways. Any help is greatly appreciated, I really want to smoke a camaro with a Bronco, that would just be cool.
