Need some opinions on tranny

The car is a 93 mustang. For now its fact. long block. w/ turbo. My goals for the car in the long run is to have a mid-high 9 sec. car.

The car's life is more less a 80% track 20% street car.

I need some opinions on Powerglide or a C4. Durability and performance are my main concerns. "Street drivability" is not as big of a concern.

I have never had neither tranny, I would like to buy one trann. and stick w/ it instead of hating and selling it.

Any advice? ( I know it's been beat to death, I've searched until my head hurts)

PG's are more durable than the C4's.....Most strip turbostangs run the PG and it's performs very well....The C4 will do good also and will lose less power through it.....

The glide will be the most consistend hands down. Both will take a beating when built right.

A lot of people now days are going with TH400s for similar combos, I would look into one as well. I would definitely not do a C4

Because all of the people I know who have tried them out in turbo cars that ran in the mid to high 9 second range, had nothing but issues with the transmissions. They just do not seem to last with the power from a turbo car, I do not know if it is the torque that does it or the power band or something else. Used to think it was the trans brake but that theory went into the can when two guys here had issues and they never used the brakes.
