You can expect both. My buddy picked up3 tenths going from a T-5 to a C4 in his stock block 347 stroker powered fox body. I'd recommend a two-step and a transbrake for the track.

I'd only use a trans-brake if you have a spool and aftermarket axles.
You don't need to bust drivetrain stuff.......

Nitrous Bob, why are you always bad-mouthing AODs? I have an AOD, and Im running high 13s on a stock motor and nothing but tranny work, and 3.55s. The AOD is a great tranny if built properly, and will handle a lot more power than a T-5.

C-4's can be well built for a whole lot less money than an AOD........

True...... but the AOD will pay for itself over time with the gas you'll save......
