aod/aode help

Ok i posted once about getting a c-4 for my car or a built auto b/c my t-5 taking a poo on me.... this is my daily driver keep in mind. If i go with a aod/aode i want soemthing thats has all the goodies transbrake,valve body, pro stick, converter, shift kit, and i want a 1-2-3 manual shifts but then go in to odrive. Does anyone have a aod/aode thats similiar to what i want? and also would i lose e/t by not going with a 5spd tremec?

and would i need to get a lower gear than my 3.55's?

Some people may disagree but a lot of people will tell you the best of the best come from www.lentechautomatics.com. Seems to be the Rolls Royce of AOD's.

I don't know about the exact shift pattern you want, but they do have valve bodies that can be shifted manually and automatically. Usually what you'll have is control over 1-2-3 with your shifter and then you'll have a switch to turn OD on and off.

ET is questionable. With a stall converter matched to your cam it is not out of the relm of possibility for you to gain ET with the AOD. If anything, it will make driving the car easier and a lot more consistant. The AOD is heavier and you will suffer a more significant drivetrain loss, so you might lose a tenth or so. For what it's worth though, people clain the heavier internals of a Tremec cost you ET over a T5, so sometimes you have to shave ET for a reliable, solid tranny.

Best of luck...
