      is the M5ODR1 trans a good one? for performance wise cuz im gona rebuild the 4.0 and want to know if it can handle more power. or if there is another trans that will mount up and work.

      would the M5ODR2 or HD, mount up or not?

      im planning on rebuilding a motor to handle a turbo setup.

      I dont think the R2 will bolt up to whatever engine came originally with an R1.

      I've wheeled mine hard for years with great success. Stock motor though... I really don't know of anyone who has put power in front of one. It's not a fast shifting tranny, even with an aftermarket shifter.

      If you don't have to worry about emissions and leaving stuff mainly stock a C-4/C-5 automatic is a good tranny that can be built to handle a lot of power.

      I think I read somewhere that the only difference in the HD trans was a slightly lower 1st gear ratio. . . maybe I'm making that up, idunno.
