Message:
the project sits at a standstill as we speak, its got teh 17's and the belltech taken care of. Now its time to do something with the 125hp V6. My question is that of will the trannsmission in my dakota match up with that of a 360 block, and will it withstand the HP it will see from it? its just the 3spd auto so my hopes are not to high!

Probably withstand the HP but not the torque. Replace it with one from a 360 and save yourself the grief.

the 904 will work,you need a different convertor or flex plate from B&M because the 360 is ext. balanced

the 904 is quicker than the 727 because of the lower first gear

it will that the hp/tq just have it checked out before you have it all put together[they use them racing]
may be a good idear to have a rebuilt done to stop problems late,its not the costly
