Unbelievable that "Baytown" has no reputable shops.
That is one of my favorite of racetrack cities.  Road Racing, Drag Racing, Circle Track, Dirt, Asphalt, Time Attack....

I've heard of Broader Performance from the guys running Fords.
You may even get a reference from Reher Morrison in Arlington.  They hooked me up with my GM transmission and probably know a good shop/person in your area for the C4.
The guy who bad-assed my transmission, worked out of his garage, and he was NO JOKE.

Ugly?  Easy now -- that's my baby and it's got lots of unique character!  When I drop that built 445" stroker in it you won't have any time to "pull over to let me pass" because I'll have already blown past you when you figure out what the hell was that loud noise behind you . . .

took the truck to the track Friday and it made its fastest pass of a 11.80 @115 mph. slowed down to turn off the track and he heard something break.  when he gave it gas it sounded like the transmission was going thru the floor. got it up and I could see the tail housing broke off the transmission. so it may just get parked for sometime.

the worst thing, in my opinion, about the c4 transmission is that the parts are so old.  and eventually those old parts are going to break.

after breaking a servo, breaking pump gears, and cracking/shredding the front drum splines, i got so fed up with c4 transmission problems that i swapped in a powerglide.  the first two broken parts happened pretty soon after finishing my 347.  the front drum shredded April, 2014, so i guess i did get some good use from the trans before giving up.  7 racing seasons with the 347 and c4.

best wishes, claude
