Could someone give me a "cliff notes" version for axle ratios. What is good, bad or indifferent. This is one area I've never paid much attention to. I've got 3.00 (according to my door tag, the tag on the rear-end is long since gone) with a 351W 2v and a FMX trans. Thanks....

Depends what your goals are. 3.00's are just fine for a daily driver or restoration.

For a performance vehicle, 3.50's or higher would be preferred. For a drag racing vehicle or a AOD tranny car, 4.11's or higher are the ticket...

Is there an AOD conversion kit for an FE?

Also, anyone had experience with an overdrive unit?

Contemplating the winter work schedule...:)

Contact Lentech Automatics out of Richmond, Ontario Canada. They sell an AOD for the FE. I think it is $2995, then you'll probably need some parts from Windsor Fox as well. Good Luck.
