I am in the process of having a C4 built for my 71 Mach. The builder has given me the option of having a standard, manual or brake valve body installed. He recommended the manual for my application (A primarily street driven car with a built 351C that sees less than 1000 miles a year) because he said it would provide room to grow power wise over a standard potential. What do you guys think about it? I would not think a brake would be a good choice?

You can put a brake in at a later date if and when you need one.

That's what I would do. I would put a manual valve body in it, and if needed at a later date, then put a 'brake in it.
