I'm new here and trying to find out if an E4OD from a 1996 F250 with 460 is a good trans for my car project. It'll be going behind a warmed over 460 in an Infiniti Q45. The 460 will be carbed and make around 550hp. I was planning to use a Baumann controller. Is there any good cheap upgrades to do the the trans such as shift kit? Are there affordable higher stall converters available for it? Would a stock diameter converter be fine for 6500rpm shifts? Would the trans be fine with that?
I don't know if it can take 6,500 RPM or not, I don't think they can (the TC that is).

63 Falcon 302/black and rust/shed isn't moving
82 F-150/Oxford White/dumb VV carb doesn't pass emissions
Yeah, I'd seen those Factory Tech valve bodies before and know the Lightning owners use them. I was just kinda hoping there's be something similar to a "Jerry's mod" for my trans that I could do myself. I would use a C4, as they will take the power, but they require frequent rebuilds even with the best parts and they don't have overdrive or a lockup. It'll be a daily driver type of car, not drag race or anything like that. My cam (Comp Xtreme energy 284H) should peak right at 6000rpm. Since I do like to go insanely fast at times, I figure I'll hit 6500rpm more than once as I've heard it's not good to go WOT in overdrive. Is that incorrect? Otherwise it'll be 6000rpm at most. A lot of truck pull guys are spinning 460s to 9000rpm for 20 seconds straight at WOT with factory blocks and cranks. I could go with a '99+ 4r70w at this power level (I'd expect it to last just as well if not better than a C4 and have overdrive), but I already have the E4OD and thought I'd use it if I could. I also wouldn't have to worry about adapting it to the big block (I know the C4 has big block bellhousings). Keep the suggestions and thoughts coming! Thanks.
