Hey guys,

I just bought my 91 Mustang. It currently has a 302 and an auto trans in it and they're coming out next week. I pretty much know where I'm going with the 2.3
I'd like to know what trans everyone is using and any pros or cons you are experiencing with it.

Thanks!

the tranny you run depends on your rearend gear and your track size, we race on a 1/2 mile track, with 3.00 rear end gears and our transmission has a 1.8 second gear ratio so we can run in 2nd all the way around, it just depends on those things

2.14 is pretty standard, BUT you might wanna double check your track rules, If the car came stock w/302 I think it's a 5-lug set-up, My track requires 4-lug. What size rear-end you got? 6.75 or 7.5 & what size tires you plan on running? gear ratio's.......... the list goes on & on....
