There is a lot that i had learned LOL and i know that. I'm just not sure how good is this newer gen than the one I have tinkered with. I found more types and better parts that will run better. Unfortunatly this newer gen engine and trans seems to be able to handle what I want to put it thru. I'm unsure about the max power and torque after being beefed up. My goal on this project is to have with a gm 4cl motor with 400+hp. I should have been more specific in the beginning.
