Misleading Discription

June 05, 2015
The Part # 57426101 transmission is advertised as good for 550 hp. After buying it and filling out the warranty to send to Performance Transmission which built the transmission I find they rate the transmission for 450 hp. I talked to two people at Speedway to find out what they do to improve it to the 550 hp and the answer was they do nothing to it. I asked if they would correct the description before I reviewed it and was told they would check into it. Now a week later and still misleading hp description. Speedway does not warranty the transmission, the company that builds the transmission does. I would not buy this transmission and expect a 550 hp warranty. I do like the transmission but when filling it with transmission fluid it blew the reverse/low servo O-ring. I called the company that built the transmission and asked if I replaced the O-ring myself if it would void the warranty and they said no, go ahead and change it. They were very nice to speak with. I would recommend this transmission for 450 hp but not Speedways claim of 550 hp
Pros:
  • Works Great
Cons:
  • Blew Revlow Servo O-ring
  • Misleading Description
No, I would not recommend this product.

The C4 transmission number 57426101 will not bolt up to the flathead V8’s but Speedway offers a kit number 91028906 that includes everything needed to mate the two including the transmission. We also offer the same conversion with an AOD transmission number 91028907.

Unless your 1987 302 has been balanced different from factory specs it requires the 50 oz. weighted flexplate such as number 57518320-50.

These are designed and fit the small block Ford V8 engines including the 289, 302, and 351 Windsor. They will work behind other engines that accept the C4 bellhousing pattern. Compare your engine to the optional transmissions available for that application. You may want to contact Street King to see if one is offered for your 2.3.

The transmission does come complete with bell housing. Torque converter is listed as 2200-2400 stall and 10 ¾” bolt pattern. It requires the 164 tooth flex plate and also the block plate number 91029012 for proper torque converter alignment. For other specific questions please call and speak to a tech

Unfortunately no these will not bolt up to a FE style bellhousing. All of the these C4s that we offer are for the small block/Windsor style bolt pattern.

Sorry for the missing paperwork Jim. Here is a link to our Website for the Installation Instructions for your Transmission. It also has the Warranty Information on the last page. You'll be able to print a copy off for your records, and a copy to send in. Your C4 transmission will require Dexron III/Mercon transmission fluid. http://static.speedwaymotors.com/pdf/574-26101.pdf

B&M 70265 Super Cooler Polished Aluminum Transmission Oil Cooler
(Part #20070265)
                        

The last thing you need in the middle of a race or a road trip is to have a transmission or engine go south because your oil cooler can't keep up. B&M's SuperCooler oil coolers will keep your transmission or engine cool and running in your time of need. They're made of lightweight aluminum, with an efficient "stacked plate" design. Multiple cooling paths give them the cooling capacity of larger fan-and-tube coolers. And, because they have a low pressure-drop design, there is less oiling-system restriction.

100% brazed construction provides superior strength and minimum overall size. Stacked fin and plate design is 33% more efficient than the same size tube-and-fin cooler.

Measures 4-1/2" x 11" x 1-1/2" thick with female 1/2 NPT ports.  Cooler efficiency rating of 7,500 BTU.
