What about an NV4500?
Or a 2 speed powerglide would be awesome for mud runs

An Sm465 would be a good choice, creep around in first, then slam into second gear. Pretty bombproof, although it probably doesn't shift fast enough for mud runs, and the second to third shift is long. I love mine!

Its a good transmission mine would be better with a automatic and some stall to soften the big cam

So I was sitting in the truck stop last night in wayland mo I was walking the dog and saw a guy cut to close and destroyed the front of a parked truck. Cop came made the report the guy circled the lot and did the same thing again 200 feet from the first truck the cop hadn't gotten out of the parking lot yet. Never seen it twice in one night especially by the same driver. What a crazy night. I have pics but can't upload them.

I'm doing a 454 build and I keep hearing about cooling being an issue. No doubt with an engine that size. But I read yours is staying on the low side around 160-180. What did you do to keep it cool?

I got a big 2 core race radiator welded brackets on it so I could mount the depth I wanted and run a clutch fan. I have had no issues. My fan is really close to the radiator I think there are pics on here I dont have any on my phone to upload
