Huge fuel sav­ings with no loss of per­for­mance

NZV8 - - NEWS -

The Ford AOD (au­to­matic over­drive) trans­mis­sion was in­tro­duced in 1980 as an an­swer to de­mands for bet­ter fuel econ­omy and im­proved driv­abil­ity. It was one of the first trans­mis­sions of its type and also one of the sim­plest by de­sign. Us­ing an AOD or (AODE) in­stead of a C4/C6. in a per­for­mance ve­hi­cle gives you a .76:1 over­drive ra­tio — the RPM and fuel sav­ings are huge with no loss of power. Rear-axle ra­tios from 3.7:1 to 4.3:1 still al­low cruis­ing RPM of 1800–2200 at 100kph. Plenty of af­ter­mar­ket parts avail­able.
