In my 93 stang, it had a C4 when I bought it. It's a good transmission if you want to drag because it can take a beating. I am in the process of swapping in a T-5. I wanted to have overdrive, because if you have and gears somewhatly high in your vehicle and C4 will be wrapping great RPM's to just cruise at highway speed. Since my car is a highway car, I went with the T-5.

I had a c4 in my 84 ranger with a 289 in it. Worked fine with the 289 but when I put a windsor in.. it didnt last long. I eventually went with a trem-3550. Took a GOOD beating and lasted longer then the rest of the vehical.

A C4 into an offroad machine tho? Something I've not heard of.

It's hard not to feel bad in this situation, but I told him exactly what I had, and the deal was done. Bummer for him...

i vote aod. my twin turbocharged mustang (over 450ftlbs) has a aod in it with just a valvebody, and also a cheapo carquest cooler

the worst part about them is the lame shifter i call it the aod shuffle.

Sre you putting the 5.0L in your 01? If so, your best choice - by a long shot - is the 4R70W trans. Pick one up from an explorer V8 / AWD and you are all set. Use the explorer 4404 AWD t-case or an F150/Expedition 4406 4x4 t-case and run it. I assume you are using the explorer engine / controls / eec-v setup for the engine swap, so you already have the electronic control you will need for the 4R70W. The 4R70W is a very strong transmission and can be built to handle anything you throw at it. That is the trans I am using with my 351W / water intercooled /2.4L Kenne Bell blown engine with AWD drivetrain. You will be hard pressed to get a better trans than the 4R70W for your application.
