that is probably 345 at the crank. you always loose power in the slushbox unless you got a standard transmission....

Finished product. Will focus on cleaning engine components and body/frame paint job in the spring. Then maybe rebuild the trans and add a gearvendor overdrive

you should probably just run that trans till it blows and then swap it out for a rebuilt 46RH. you can then get a gear vendor overdrive for a 46RH if you wanted but it probably wouldn't be needed since they already have overdrive but then again if you spend enough time at high speeds having the double overdrive could help on fuel

I've heard that the 727 is one of the best transmissions out there in terms of durability and simplicity, which is music to my ears. I've been told to hold onto it rather than swap a different one in. Is the 46RH better?

the 46RH is pretty much a 727 with overdrive. they are a bit more expensive to rebuild than a 727 since they have the overdrive unit but it is way cheaper than what a gear vendor unit goes for.
