You are internal balanced - so a swap is easy and safe.

Excellent! Thanks :)

Hi Stangman. Thanks for your concern :)
I'm doing better now after a couple of surgeries involving an implant and som bone grinding and it will be even better the surgeon told me.
I will never be tired of 600+ hp and one of these days, I'll go hunting for more, hehe

Even though I am very happy with how my T56 Magnum 6-speed performs, I have been thinking more and more about replacing it with an auto.
Mainly due to health issues but also stop and go traffic.
I've been trying to put together a parts list of what I need and also trying to find a reputable transmission shop.
So far it seems like Lentech has a good reputation but they don't have a complete kit for the swap so I need to source some items myself if I chose them

One thing I would like to know is if I can just replace my flywheel with any flex plate(brand?)? What about balancing?
Barry, maybe you have some input about this since you built my 527? Is the crank, pulley and flywheel I currently have balanced together so that swapping out the flywheel will mess up the total balance?

Regards
