Default tranny swap: C4 vs FMX

i need to replace my aod, and i want to swap either the fmx or c4 into my car. if i put a c4 in the car can i still use my stock driveshaft? how do i modify my stock shifter to work with the transmission, ive read that you can do this but i dont know how to make the modification so if youve done it please tell me about it. how bad is the c4 on the highway with no overdrive? my aod never had overdrive so i dont think ill care about that.also does anyone here know how i would swap an fmx into my car because i already own an fmx from a 70 mustang. i know its heavy and theres a lack of aftermarket but it has the same gear ratios as the aod does i believe so it kinda makes sense. i havnt been able to find out any info about this and im curious to know if its been done. if you could provide a link to any sites with step by step instruction on the c4 swap that would be cool too. thanks

I had a C-4 in my 79 and hated it. IMO.......get a clutch pedal from the salvage yard and put a 5-speed in it.....much more fun.

im not doing a 5 speed swap. i dont want a manual at all.plus i have no money to get all the parts involved with the 5 speed swap but if the c4 swap is as easy as it seems i can do that.thats also why i want to know about an fmx swap i own one already
