another 460 swap, what transmission?

poked around a bit and didn't find a good answer.

78 Bronco, what are the transmission options?
its a ground up build so anything goes, either auto or manual.
currently has a C6, (actually it's laying on the garage floor next to it)
I know a NP435 or T18 would fit, but I'm looking for overdrive.

any factory 5 speed manuals that will fit between a 460 and NP203?
any factory autos with overdrive and lockup TC that won't need a computer?

are there any charts showing the OD gear ratios so I can determine what axle ratios to get my cruising RPMs? I know the math, just need the tranny numbers.

thanks

Not that will fit a 460.

you could have an AOD built to handle the power and isnt much more than having a C6 built. for a manual trans i would go with a ZF 5 speed.

an E4OD would work well, just run a Bauman trans controller and get a tone ring mounted to the back of the tcase.
