Tranny swap

I am rebuilding the 460 in my 90 F250 and am planning to go to a carbed setup to make more power than I can get with the fuel injection. This means that I can either use the existing e4od tranny that could use a rebuild due to high miles) and add an aftermarket tranny controller (more $$) or use the C6 in my 87 F250 parts truck.

My question is, can I use the c6 from the 87 along with the BW1356 t case from the 90? both trucks are complete from bumper to bumper, so I could rob any and all parts needed.

Re: Tranny swap

I highly recomend going with pre-73 Dove II heads they will realy wake that engine up. Also and edelbrock performer cam/intake and 750 cfm carb will too.

Re: Tranny swap

By converting to Mass Air you can get more power out of the FI than Carb but I digress.....

The E4OD is a great tranny able to handle lots of power but it is expensive to fix. The C6 is cheap to fix, can handle lots of power but it cost you in fuel and wear-and-tear due to no OD.

the t-case will bolt up. If it is electric it will function great, manual you might have some issues with the shifter mount. Driveshafts is another issue. Both trucks must be identical length to swap the trannies and not have to rebuild the shafts...
