Default 427 Windsor 460 HP

I am going to be pulling the trigger on this engine soon. However I have a couple of questions. I plan on using an AOD tranny but I'm not sure which company or setup I should use? I know that I must have at least a 2000 stall converter. I also am unsure of what rear-end setup I should use, right now I just have the stock 8". Would it be wise to just rebuild the 8" or use completely different rear-end.

Here is the link to the engine: http://www.smedingperformance.com/fo...orsepower.html

The car is a 1967 Mustang Coupe

I would use at least an 8.8, a 9" if you can find one

I'm running an auto from www.dynamicracingtrans.com and a 9" from www.strangeengineering.net behind the 427W in my Mustang. I'm happy with both companies.

OUCH at the 9" prices! Wish you could still find them in junkyards. When I was a kid my dad put his off of his 77 F-150 in the trading post and it sold only hours after that week's issue came out!
