Every one i have talked to tells me that they only run low gear, so is one better than the other or is it just the weight?

they are about as strong as one another so I would say the lightest one

powerglides come with 1.83 or 1.76 first gear Turbos have 2.5 first, 1.5 second. depending on what final drive ratioo you want and what rearend gears you have available may influence your decision. Also powerglide absorbs less power due to less parts and lower rotational weight. Also many heavy duty parts are available for powerglides at reasonable prices

I'd go with the glide i ran mine in high gear instead of low figured that would be less stress on the tranny. Eddie
