I have a 1984 F-150 4x4
the tranny is bulletproof and excellent but i hate it for driveing around town and on the highway,it drives like a tractor.
my question is if i found a used c-6. wouldn't the final gear be the same as the one in the 4 speed, 1:1 ??
if it is what are the choices for overdrive automatics?
my friend has a bronco with a 302 and an AOD(i think it is an 86)
it drives really good and has an excellent overdrive.
and i can find one around here pretty cheap i think.
are there any other ones that i could look for and not spend an arm and a leg.

also the 351W puts out around 270hp
i have done a little to it no internal work just intake and carb,ignition.

will the aod handle that my friends seems to do very well.

it also has 33" tires.
that i probably will trade for 31's

i am getting 9.5 mpg.

and NEED and overdrive.

that is can get used for under 300$
then rebuild.
