Automatic to Cobra R Transmission in 2000 Mustang GT

Ok so I posted before asking if it would work to switch my 4.6 into the cobra r engine/transmission going from automatic to manual, most of you said it was a bad idea and would cost to much so I looked around a bit more and found a Performance automatic transmission from Performance Automatic. Its the AODE Transmission that is supposed to be capable of holding up to 650 horses and it solves my problem of going from an automatic to a manual. I was just curious has anyone used one before? or known someone who has? any problems with it? let me know what you guys think.

Ok so I'm a little confused....your were trying to put a corba R engine into your 2000 GT, and then also switch the transmission from ur auto to a manual? But now u've decided to just keep your engine and put in that stronger auto tranny? I'd like to help, but I don't fully understand what ur doing...could you explain a little better?

no thats not it at all. Right now I've got a 2000 mustang gt with an auto transmission. What I was saying was I wanted to swap in a cobra motor and transmission but I would be switching from the automatic to a manual. Seeing as most people thought that was a bad Idea and would cost to much I was thinking about Just swaping in a better automatic transmission from Performance Automatic. I was just wondering if anyone knew anything about Performance Automatic Transmissions.
