but since you brought up a good topic........ Grin  I want to know more about what transmission is better way to go?

I really dont think my 408 with my tko  26 spline input shaft and 32 spline output..... is going to hold up at all.....

I could be wrong , but what is the best route for me to go with???

What stephen johnson said.  If you have too much clutch you'll break stuff.  I run an adjustable base pressure long style clutch with counterweights. So im able to turn down the clutch so im not breaking parts and spinning the tires.  If you get the right clutch you should be fine.

Here's the thing... You can buy another tranny if you're are worried your TKO won't handle it.  Or you can try it, see what happens, if it works you're in good shape.  If it breaks, you gotta buy another one anyway.  Anthony85stang is right too.  Run a good clutch, I use a Mcleod Twin Disk with the long style pressure plate, it's a little easier on things than say a DFX clutch or some aggressive single disk.  I really think you will be fine man.

Mines kinda a custom base pressure with a ram 100 series disc.  I got mine from hanlon motorsports.  Bob's a good guy to deal with.  You can get them from summit but they usually have too much base pressure i think one of the part numbers is ram-425.

i would much rather sell it and get some money out of it, then to break it and then you have a pile of broken pieces and then you gotta fix it and buy another trans. Sell it and get something else..

I have the Mcleod RST Twin Disk.  It's pretty pricey but I'd say its worth it.  I don't have a part number for you though.  I don't know what size disk you want or what flywheel you are using.  Just go to mcleodracing.com and look it up there.
