im planning to swap to one of these or possibly a different one if someone can show me a cheaper, better one but i do plan to get a new tranny but i dont wanna go to a 5.4 because i dont want to have to replace the rear axle and i dont wan to do a suspension kit yet till after i get the motor
i ran a 5.4 for a little bit and never broke my 7.5'' im back down to a 4.6 now and looking to trade everything and go back to a 3.8 so no you dont hvae to swap out. unless yout gonna be stupid and trying to break it
Once the tires are spinning you are fine. Its that sudden force it gets from the hard launches and hard shifting. The 7.5 won't even hold up behing the 5.0 pushrod for very long if it is abused. Sure, granny shift and take off slow or slip the clutch and you will be fine.
