I can't answer the second part of the question, but you have an AOD.

It's not a 97 Sport, it just looks like one!

Like already said, it's an AOD.

Nope, it won't hold 400hp. It's going to cost you between $1800 and $2500 to get an AOD that will hold up to that.

I disagree.......400hp is easy, and teh AOD holds well up to 600. After 500 I suggest 4R70W upgrade.

Stick with your AOD depending on what you do with the car.

So the 4R70W is rated to 700 foot pounds of torque. What type of torque multiplication do you get when the torque converter isn't locked?

And I don't know what this has to do with your AOD, but I do know that is what the 70 in 4R70W stands for.

You're right. I don't know what I was thinking. dirtyd0g is such a liar.

What I mean is you make 400 sound like a chore for the AOD....however you are correct, it will cost some money.

Well, there are a couple of good choices that I am aware of. You can contact dirtyd0g on here and see if he would be willing to hook you up. He built mine and we put the strongest stuff that can be had in mine. The other option is to check out Lentech and pick one up from them. They seem to offer a pretty good option as well. You can find out more from here: http://www.lentechautomatics.com/aodhome.html

The goal here is to get one that you can put in and forget it. You will also want an appropriate torque converter along with it. The stock converter just won't cut it so you'll want to make sure you budget for that.

You'll find that Lentech is probably more expensive than dirtyd0g (Alan). The Lentech you'll want to start with is the Street Bruiser at least.

Good luck.
