    A real problem with Allisons is apparently the nose gearing. Mustangs really need the .420 transport nose case to run around 400mph and there is nothing really comparable commonly available for the Allison. In the aafo archives from a few years back there is a post from Mike Barrow talking about this. There are endless but interesting threads about Merlin vs Allison in the archives here. The bottom line always seems to be that Allisons are great daily driver motors but Merlins will go a lot faster a lot cheaper if you take into account what you'd have to spend on an Allison to produce similar results.
