C4 600HP Build Questions
 
Several years ago I built my C4 with parts from Broader & a lot of help here (thanks!). Motor (68 Mustang) was about 460 HP, ran 11.70s. Got about 1000 passes on it; still going strong. I'm building a new motor and it'll be 550 HP. I plan to freshen the trans. What other upgrades should I do to be sure it lives? Current build: 1974 C4 (26/24 spline shaft) Front pump oiling mod (removed spring & check ball) 5 red clutches in both drums #9 thrust washer oiling mod Drilled reverse/high clutch drum Rollerized 3-gear planetary (from Broader) Replaced #4 Thrust with Torrington (From Broader) Aluminum deep +1 quart pan Kevlar rear band A-code servo Was thinking the following: Hardened input shaft H-code servo Is the Broader #9 needle bearing kit worth doing? Thanks.

I was hoping not to have to go the full roller route. It complicates things.


It sounds like I don't really need the hardened shaft.


Others have thoughts on this?

At 550 HP, an input shaft would be good insurance.
Why do you think full roller will complicate it. Again good insurance . Can be done yourself if you have access to basic machining. The Broader #9 kit works well
A "H" or "C" servo is good.

What valvebody ?

Valve body is reverse pattern manual with trans-brake from Broader.


I could consider the roller. Is there a thread on the subject? Or more info? I'll do a search, but sometimes searches take a while as there's soooo much info here!

Email sent Tom :) That Broader valvebody works sweet.

It does. I've been racing with it for a few years.
