Well, I have a built 2001 Mustang Gt with twin turbo's. I am currently at 600ish rwhp with plans for around 800 to the wheels. I can't afford an Aod and I am currently running a t-56. I go to the track about once a month and drive it on the street 3-4 times a week. I like to play around on the steet but would like to get a little more serious about the track but I'm not ready to dedicate this car as a track car yet since I don't have another daily besides my company work truck. Last time at the track I smoked a Ram 900 HD clutch. They are going to replace it and say it should hold but I don't want to fight these clutch issues all the time. I can't afford a twin disk mcleod or anything right now and I can basically get into a built C4 with everything good to 1000hp and a converter to my specs as a even trade. What to do?

while i like fords, i would think about a glide for that setup.
cant use a glide on the street? why not, with that kind of torque? a 400 will eat almost as much hp as a C6, so why not a C6 then? or maybe a th350? i know ati has a 350 behind a 1600 hp supra running about 7.00 at around 190 mph. torsional input shaft, heavy duty drum with heavy duty sprag.
i think the thing about the 400 is that there are more aftermarket parts for it than a c6. if i remember right, the c6 eats something like 6 hp more than a 400, so thats not a big deal. you have to modify the drums to hold more clutches & a good valve body & r code type servo are a must.

what engine is in this mustang. if its a 4.6, then some type of adapter is needed anyway for the c4 & i'm not sure an adapter exists to put a c6 on a 4.6 motor
