Take it to a trans shop for a service. Nothing wrong with FMX's. They are a strong box. C10's (well actually they are a later revision of the C4) aren't that great. I've blown plenty and now have a Chev box. I got sick of replacing C10's! It's been two years and I've not had to touch a g/box. Couldn't get 6mths from a C10 without trouble. The C4/10's are a high maintanence box in high hp apps. Especially if they are built in Vic.


If there is nothing wrong with FMXs why you running a chev box in yours?

Because 600hp and 500ftlbs of torque is a tad more than the 400hp I stated the stock FMX is good for. I was breaking C10's when I used to have a tad over 500hp and around 430/450ftlbs of torque.

The Chev box is set and forget, it's that reliable.

There's nothing wrong with C4's either. There's a lot of people who say they know how to build them....obviously they don't.
There's a guy here in Perth running a 524ci ZC that does low tens all day long. It's got a C4.

Exactly. We Victorians get screwed over when it comes to C4's.
