    Maybe a 228/228 .588/.588 or even a 234/234 .608 on a 114 lobe seperation. Should make good mid to high end power.

    I think he meant 150 but I like your style. To OP, what did you run with mods above.

    just a question though. why would you put a th400 and a transbrake in a bolt on car? i can understand doing it after HCI swap but before? idk seems like a waste of money to me IMO

    its funny because everyone always say that they wish they built it from back to front.. but it is always after the fact...power and speed are too big of a temptation most of the time
