C4 was in my old TE behind a 250 xflo. I do have a v8 bellhousing to suit also. Converter is small 4 stud bolt pattern. Same as early windsor I believe.
If your still interested, im looking for $350 for box and stally...

Clutch cable, manual pedals, can use existing pedal box when used with a billet pin kit. Gearbox wiring loom. Manual Centre console???
Flywheel, clutch, kebab, cold beer, stubby holder, New flywheel studs, loctite, Spigot bearing, and a rattle gun.
Maybe the diff could do with an oil change...
And some synthetic gearbox oil.

My 1st corty pulled a 10.5 down the 1/8th, with a slipping clutch, and a single spinner diff. The 1/8th is still a lot of fun...
Wilby 1/8th mile drags are on 3rd of december.
Im aiming for a Flat 9 or high 8 on slicks. Only managed a 9.57 at heathcote.
Do you get your MPH at the Warrick drags? Cos at Wilby you only get your time... Eventually..!
