A later model is good, hopefully it doesn't have the 3000 rpm governor. Probably the big Transgo shift kit with the servo and minor hard part upgrades should be enough. Getting line pressure above 200 psi can be a PIA. Parts from CK were painful to get for me but there stuff is proven. Good luck.
I have the same designated type CTF transmission that will eventually go into my car. Apparently it was from an '89 Chevy Caprice. I know it's not the performance trans, but will be build up accordingly for firmer shifts and to live behind my 300hp smallblock.
