You are an automagic right? That would be an a500 or I forget the new name for the electronicly controlled version. If you don't rod it then the a500 would live but probably not happy. If you had the a500 build up it would live behind the 318 or 360 or 408 w/out a problem. There is a shop in Dubuque Iowa that is very reputable on the mopar 727 (518 without o/d) that I have heard great things about. I will see if I can get a name. If you could get a 518 used with the engine make sure you get a warranty.

I don't know..... some places I have heard of give a 3 month/3k mile but that is not standard by any means.
