I would find a 4R100 since you have a 2002. I would check out John Wood, he is the one i am sending my E4OD out of my F-250 LD to. He mainly works on Diesel transmissions but he said as long as it is an E4OD or 4R100 he can work with them and even use the same parts he uses for his race builds. As many of you know Diesels are torque monsters so if his transmissions can hold 1200ftlb+ of torque then i think it can handle most anything us gassers can dish out.

Nope they wanted way too much so I just had a shop here in town rebuild it with some upgraded parts and a shift kit.

Where are my engine guys at?!?!

Looking to throw flat top pistons in the 4v and try to use a "stage 2" camshaft. Not sure on the specifics yet but I want your input on piston to valve clearance with running flat tops and bigger camshafts.

Also been considering just running 96-98 Cobra cams with flat tops and throwing on an intake/exhaust/tune and calling it good.

Opinions?

I would let the machine shop make this decision. IMO I'd like to think you would at least want notches for piece of mind. However, it the machine shop can verify there's plenty of room then it should be good to go. This would be very hard to advise without proper measuring though.
