i just got done putting on 3.73 gears pi 9.5 3000 rpm converter and the same transgo shift kit. the gears will work great with the converter. the shift kit is very nice but i hadnt heard of the j-mod either when i did it. i called pi and they ask you lots of question which helps them make a converter exactly to the performance you desire. few words of advice since i screwed up when doing this. get a traction lock differential....get a dennis chip if you want to race. the shift points will be way to high otherwise. and when transgo says full race on their kit they mean it. i cant give any advice on the transmission since i dont know much about them but mine has taken quite a bit of abuse. My 95 4.6 ran 16.5 in the quarter mile with crappy tires launching at 1200 rpm. well have fun and let us know how it goes

stock

thats stock with bald tires I havent run the 1/4 mile yet due to the fact that ive only put 50 miles on my car since the mods. ill get back to you later on the 1/4 time when i put some more miles on those gears. but i may have a chip and exhaust then too:D

also probably a lot cheaper. FYI pi torque converters cost around 853 dollars shipped. thats a lot of cash. they are slightly better than mark 8 torque converters though..... stall wise and how much horsepower they can handle probably lighter 2 which helps performance. if money is an issue get the mark 8 converter. just make sure its new and you will need its flexplate also.
