valair. if you plan on hooking to a sled and raceing id prolly get the 3650 from them. i personaly run the 3850 but it can be kind of grabby

I had great luck with South Bend when I had my other truck. Pedal pressure was lighter and it hooked up and did not complain when I was at 30,000 running over the pass.

The only thing that was a little bit of a pain was it grabbin when I was loaded and using reverse to move around in tight areas. I put a 2wd low range switch in which pretty much took care of that problem.

my personal opinion is to go with a South bend 3250 12 cb DD. it will hold up to the sled pulling and the drag racing and also will be great on the street. it will also be able to handle more power when you decide that 550 isnt enough. which you will!
