here are 2 easy ways to tell between a C4 & C6. A C4 has 11 bolts in the pan, a C6 has 17 bolts. A C4 has a bolt on bellhousing whereas the C6 case is all one piece.

There are 2 models of C6: Big Block and Small Block. The bellhousing bolt patterns are different.

The C6 is a very tough gearbox, you'll never break one with a street 351, but they do chew up more power than any other 3 speed.

The C4 is also quite a tough little gearbox and doesn't eat up much power. In a high performance application, they are easily modified to cope.

For a street engine, I'd go for the C4

All the best: simple crm for small business

I've been reading about some of the mods.Sounds like a C6 is the way to go.

C6 is an excellent choice when built right .

Just my opinion but i think some of the bad you read about c6 is guys who have struggled with failures due to junk TCI valvebodies
