I am building a rat rod with this combo. Trans is from a 4.2L truck and engine is a 351W with a 164 tooth flywheel 28oz. I would like to go to the parts store and source one off the shelf.

Does anyone know of an application to fit this combo? I prefer a gear reduction style but could work with the old style with the seperate relay if I had to.

Thanks!

Make sure your converter bolt pattern fits your flywheel.There are 2 sizes.What trans controller are you going to use?

I haven't decided on a controller yet. Any suggestions?
