Hi all, I’m in the infant stages of planning for an aluminum head. My current C4 has always leaked a little when it sits for a week. I don’t know the history on it so to be safe I plan to opt for a rebuild in the near future.

Question: is the stock automatic C4 a good match for a stock block and aluminum head?

if not what transmission should I get that is best suited for the future aluminum head.

Yes for the most part your stock C4 with a few up grades will handle lots more power. Mods would be a TransGo shift kit, a small trans cooler, the later 1971 up input shaft, adding the V8 drums or mod yours for more clutches and steels, and depending on your cam choice a higher stall speed torque converter. With those few mods the trans is upgraded to better and stronger 1971 up V8 C4 specs.
