  • Anybody tried 5.9 and od trans swap?

    I'm thinking about swapping out my 360 / a904 for a 5.9 / a518. Have any of you done that? I'm thinking of keeping the newer stuff pretty stock, factory efi, ect. All I've done to my car is switch to a 4bbl, get rid of the lean burn and put in 3.55 gears and suregrip. I'm starting to have some trans trouble and was thinking an overdrive trans would be nice. Then came the "as long as I'm already doing stuff..." just wondering how stupid I'm getting before I'm neck deep.

    what do you guys think?

    Did you ever go ahead with this swap? We swapped the o/d into our 79 Magnum and also one into our 76 Cordoba, works great. We have a 5.9 sitting on the bench here for some time but haven't really got involved in swapping it in, we would however stay with carburetor.
