From my perspective a Saginaw is good for a 6 banger or a low HP small block, but as far as putting any real amount of torque to one your better off trying to find a Muncie at a swap meet or wherever. I personally have destroyed at least a half dozen 4 speed saginaws, 2 borg warner T10's and even a M20, and M21 Muncie before buying a decent M22 rock crusher. The M22 was a good tranny. This was all in a short box step side pickup back in the 70's. Had a few different engines but back then 11:1 pistons, 2.02 camel hump heads, 750 holley double pumper, big solid lifter cam was still maybe only 450 horse on a good day?? I was a crazy kid that thought the only way to shift gears was with your right foot jammed onto the floor boards, and hit the clutch as fast as you could letting your foot slip off the side of clutch pedal as you pulled the shifter as hard , fast and as in sync with your left foot as humanly possible! Now that I think of it maybe that's why the Saginaw's didn't seem that great:) Seriously though from a performance perspective I wouldn't put much effort or $ into a Saginaw.
