Transmission Shield

I have a 1994 Mustang with a th400 in the car with a Jw bell housing. I need to get a transmission shield or blanket. My engine builder was saying that the blankets really hold the heat in. My question will a shield fit with the tunnel or am I stuck with the blanket. What would you guys recommend.

id suggest a SFI case... the TH400 is big enough doubt you will fit a 400 and a shield in the stock tunnel

SFi Case

Thanks summit universal blanket it is. Maybe I will get a case down the road when it needs to be serviced. I have been racing it for three years and no one ever said anything but I am doing index racing this year and I had to put on an engine diaper so I figure they are probably going to look at transmission at this point too when they look underneath.

How much would it cost switching it to sfi case. Pretty much in the same boat.

diapers are never a bad idea! if you have an air hammer and a blunt bit for it you can make quick work of making room in the trans tunnel.

th400

With my luck ill make a hole in the floor. I ordered the blanket last night and see what happens and next time it comes out for service I will look for a used aftermarket case 400 and get it freshened.

Air Hammer

With that I probably would not. Have you tried to install a shield before or do you just get the case right away? I looked for pics and I could not find anything or anyone with a th400 installed with a shield or blanket. Do alot of people just not use them?
