Ride: EF II TickMont, BA XR6T

Location: Adelaide - Whyalla
SA, Australia

their seems to be lots of mixed emotions about how much potential the BTR has

has anyone here tried putting lots of into a semi built BTR ??
i would like to know how well they handle power as i am going to be doing it with my 393 stroker,
the car is still going to be streetable semi daily possibly just a weekend car not a drag car

any questions or comments welcome


Cheers

Tezza

Maserati thought they were good enough for them, and there are some bloody tough Bosses and XR6T's about. My gut says go for it, they are a bloody good box, otherwise 4R100 4R55 or E4OD will be good options. 4R55 by TCI will handle 600....and a 5 speed.....

APS automatics in richmond NSW built my BTR auto(which is currently for sale, due to manual conversion). Had new bits installed from the V8 box to make it strong aswell as a firm shift kit which spins the rears shifting into 2nd
