I know budgets are tight but there are a few things to consider. If you get a stock case , JW bell , flexplate etc to get a trans together and then decide to get a better case down the road, the only option is a JW case. The JW cases are hit and miss on availability so we have to be careful. If you break the stock case which may very well happen then the efforts are all for not.
The Reid case is a really nice piece but as its setup now it has no interchangeability with any other products and requires a slightly different mount location than a regular glide which may be a pain to do afterwards.

The ratio to use would be the 1.80 and I would really like to see you use a liquid/liquid transmission cooler to protect your investment.
