Definately removed the driveshaft and inserted one of those plastic plugs so that no tranny fluid will not leak out.

Well you asked for some constructive ideas. Depending on the motor, power, and tire height 3.42 to 4.10 are usually ideal quarter mile gears. With the 200-4R you still get a 2.49 final drive ratio which is great for low rpm interstate cruising and mileage. Plus with a high stall lock up converter you bust off the line yet still have low transmission temps and save another 200+ rpms for best mileage. <a href="http://www.extremautomatics.com" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Link added by VigLink" class="vglnk">http://www.extremautomatics.com</a> lonnie built two for me and I have had great luck with both including the one that went behind a 509ci big block with posi n large drag radials. Good thing it had the 8.5 rear. The 88 Salon GTs up here had a 3.08 gear, hard top, buckets, console, ralley guage pack, ralleys, and the "f41" spring & swaybar package. Oh yea and the vin Y 307 Guess it was better than the carberated 3.8.
This will be a high performance driver, maybe once or twice a year at local 1/8 mile track. The 350 turbo will NOT be used. I already have a T5 from a 1992 z28 with 92k miles on it. My car only has the 7.5 but I'm on the lookout fir an 8.5. Once I find one I will be installing a true-trac and a 4.10 gear. I think that gear will work since I will be running 18 or 20 inch rims. This car also has the F41 package so thats a plus. This car will also be lowered 2 inches all the way around.
