Which would be the shorter driveline

Instead of dealing with the 727/front driveshaft issue, I'm just going to swap out the tranny.

Which would provide the shorter driveline - a TF999 or an AMC TH400 with adapter for the D300?

Basically - how long is the TF999 and how long is the AMC TH400?

The 400 is 24 3/4". Not sure how long a 999 is. The adapter is 3.6" long for the 400. I'd say the 999 bolted to a 300 is probably much shorter. You may want to consider a Turbo 350, it is over 3" shorter than a 400 and they can be built to withstand most anything. I had one behind a very built 350 Olds that held up just fine for years.

Re: Which would be the shorter driveline

The 400 is way long and the adapter is big bucks. You will end up with rear driveshaft issues. I have the 999 with a 300, and a ford 9in in the rear and the rear driveshaft is 26" ride height. The front i think is 34" at ride height with a d44. Oh yeh thats with a tired 4in lift.

Can someone please bring me a hammer my 33's just ate my fender again. Damn i need more lift.

Then I guess I'll look in to having a 999 built for a mild 360. The Turbo 350 would still require a high $ adapter, yes? I wonder if there would be any advantages to the Turbo 350 over the 999?
