My decision would be influenced by what's already there, if the car is already equipped with a 904 you have to compare the expense of changing over to a 727. The 904 can definitely be built to handle a stout 360 but it costs more than to build a 727 with the same capability.

The clutch disc in a 727 has exactly twice the surface area of that in the 904 and the apply pistons in thew 727 are larger so the same hydraulic pressure will apply the 727 clutches tighter. The 727 kickdown band has nearly twice the surface area of the 904.

Lighter weight and less parasitic drag are about the only things the 904 has going for it.
