    You are in the right forum. Stock trans but Modified engine.

    The t98 will live just fine behind a big hp engine. A lot of people that put big engines in also want to be able to cruise down the highway. That is why you read a lot about 5 speeds and automatics with overdrive. That and the fact that if you go to the money and effort of putting in an engine, it is often cheaper and easier to put in the transmission made to go behind the new engine. Good luck with your swap.
    Remember if you didn't build it you can't call it yours.

    i know that when you put a B.B. in the fire wall has to be worked with a B.F.H. if i use the T98 with the adapter will that space it out at all?

    If you move the motor mounts forward about 2 inches, maybe a little less, you dont need to beat the fire wall, you can use a stock fan and you'll be happy. Ask Spicer and Joe/Ia and M1028....all have done it.
    Also I have heard the BBC up to 650 horse has run in a competition environment with no'll be alright if you dont do something stupid.
