Transmission application question

821 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  fogged408w
I am on a budget build, I am having trouble finding information on ford tranny applications. I am building a 88 mustang hatch. I see a lot of ford trannys for sale but a lot of them are from Ford trucks. Are all ford trannys the same length? Are some longer than the others? Should I stay away from certain ones? Your help is apreciated.

c4 for a car, i believe that a truck is bigger/longer and some have different bell housings pending on year. but im sure that someone else will chime in to make absolutely sure what im telling you is correct. also try posting in the c4 section and you are sure to get more help.
You'll want a 4 speed AOD transmission , it has overdrive. Tricky part about an AOD is adjusting the TV rod correctly. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, dont use an AOD transmission. Use a C4

Now if your building a serious drag car on a budget you will want a 3 speed C4 trans. They can be built to handle 500hp cheaper than an aod.
