Most want to put the trans in and forget about for a good part of the season. I personally have mine in with a mid plate and removable trans mount so its easy to pull mine out. Dynamic Racing did try some new parts and new things on my trans and im the geni pig on it.
I hope you have better luck with Harold and Son than I did. Nice enough guys but they couldn't build a c4 that would live behind my 508. X6 mm2.....with a bunch of fancy pieces. 20 passes and the car fell off .200 like clock work. RPM, heat and nitrous killed all of mine and they built me 3. I'm not a c6 fan as I'm a small tire guy and need the tunability of the "other" options. C4's are great for a medium power deal but start putting 4 digits at it and its over

It seems as though everybody is in the conversation except for the O.P. Who knows what he did...

I'd say if you aren't into all the maintenance and just want the fastest and most reliable drag race times then just put a power glide in it. If tenth's of a second aren't important and you just want reliability then put a C6 in it.

I completely forgot about this post. I normally don't check the driveline section. If I ever move up to a big block, then I'd probably run a C6, but for now, I'm gonna enjoy my 363 stroker, backed by a T5.
