New engine getting closer to being assembled. We have decided not to go with a Sharadon Stage 3 tranny. We will be installing a GM 4L80E. Durability seems to be pretty good for high hp applications. One good thing is that 4th gear ratio of .75 allows the 456 gears in the rear to drink like it had 3.42 gears, (Gear ratios, 1st 2.48, 2nd 1.48, 3rd 1 to1, 4th .75 .).
