Re: 700r4 mate with 454bb

I hope you guys had 'em beefed up before you install 'em, most won't last very long behind a built 454. With the right parts and as long as you don't race it hard, you should be fine.

FOR ME, MINE IS A MILD 468, MAYBE 600HP AT BEST AND THE 700 IS REWORKED TO HANDLE IT, SHES JUST A STREET CAT FOR ME , BUT GOOD POINT..

Re: 700r4 mate with 454bb

IMO 4.10s are to low to use with a 700.First gear will be useless.

Re: 700r4 mate with 454bb

I have a 454/700 in my Camaro. I agree about the gearing. I have 3:31 and can barely get through the intersection before it shifts out of 1st.

Re: 700r4 mate with 454bb

so what would be a ideal rear to put behind a 454? with a 700r4 I am looking to build a fast grocery getter 79 z28 and drive on freeways lol. It has a 350 three speed with 4:10 rear,witch sucks because i hit second gear before i get to 20mph and third at like 35 and rad line at like 60mph..doom for freeway use atm

Re: 700r4 mate with 454bb

I personally think that unless you know someone who can truly build a 700R4 to live behind a healthy Big Block, don't waste your time fretting about the gear ratio. A 700R4 isn't the best choice. Maybe not even second best.

If you want an automatic with OD, look at a 4L80E 1st, a T400 with Gear Vendors overdrive second and a properly built 2004R third.

Regardless of engine, a 4.10 behind a 700R4 would be really short!

Just to give you an idea...
1st gear in 700r4 with 4.10 rear will feel like 1st gear in TH350 with 4.99 rear. So if you think 1st is short with your current setup just wait... I think you get the picture. 3.73 rear is the max you want with a 700r4 setup. I would recommend something less than that around mid 3's. (3.55, 3.42, 3.31). Similar thread...
