Hi guys, new to this forum, Lot's of great info on here. I've been in the 6bt scene for a while now but im looking for a little fuel economy. Im fixing to get motivated on about a 98 ranger 4bt swap. This will be an extended cab 2wd. ive always been a standard tranny lover, but with wife now wanting to drive projects, so it should probably be an auto. i know the 350 and 400 turbo's work well with the adapter plate from the bread truck, but i would really like an overdrive transmission.
Ive searched a little in the forums but i really havn't came up with a solution. i really dont want a body lift on the truck, no offense to anyone with a body lift, just not my cup of tea. keep in mind the power level will be around 200 at first, then we could get a little wild, thinkin bout an hy35 over s3 with a 64 inducer or something later on. Im not opposed to an electronic controled tranny with a stand-alone controller. but id like to be able to switch from a rotary pump to a p series as i grow with this project. keep in mind that im not the nicest person to a tranny, it will get beat on, and i tear stuff up.
Ive kinda been looking at the 700r4 ive played with these in gassers before, but could it be built to handle the torque of a 4bt? the 700r4 kinda has a smaller case and the overdrive is nice.

so my criteria: small transmission that i can shove in without to much trans tunnel mods.
overdrive
availability of adapter late and flywheel
Speedometer
torque rating
cost effectivness

any help would be greatly appreciated.

Pft, I'd tell her learn to drive stick or too bad. :D

For an auto, I'd look for a 4BT with a Ford adapter and run a 4R70W. Should hook up easily since it was used in the Explorer.
