    Gas and Power 1985 Grand Prix 3.8 V6

    Depends on if you want top end speed or quick out of the hole speed. If out of the hole speed is what your after then I would suggest changing gears in the rearend.

    Need engine swap advice -1986 Monte Carlo Ls

    I looked on Car-part.com in your area, (PA) and there are several used ones to choose from around $300 to $400 for the 4.3 which would get you going as a DD sooner than later.

    Need engine swap advice -1986 Monte Carlo Ls

    If you are looking for a daily driver, I would get a rebuilt 4.3 and go back with that. It will cost a lot less than changing over to a 350 and would be dependable.

    Drive shaft question

    We move out engines back on our dirt cars so that would mean the driveshaft has to be shorter. My 85 Monte Carlo SS has both mounting locations. It came with the th200r4 but I had a th350 so that's what I put in it.

    GSI Interiorss, rear seat covers are great.

    I just ordered a set of rear seat covers in black vinyl for my 85 SS, Got them in and put them on the rear seats and they were fantastic. The fit was good just had to pull them tight but wasn't a real problem. I am putting in leather front seats out of a Cobalt 2 door and these will match them...

    Opinions on Parts Store Crankshafts?

    To answer you're original question, I have used the crank kits from O'rieleys in several motors, even a race motor or two and have had good luck. The company that they use is Crankshaft specialies, or rebuilders they go by both names, and they do a lot of crankshafts. I always check the...

    Steering Column Difference

    I think you can buy just the coller that is without the place for the shifter and replace just it and you can keep your original column.

    7.5 rear suggestions

    The axle has 2 1/2 inches of thick bearing surface on the outside of the axle. We have done this on some of our dirt cars with no problems. It may even be that the 28 spline axle goes into the carrier a little farther so it will may ride it the correct location. As I said before Im going to do...

    7.5 rear suggestions

    I am doing this just as an experiment on a low cost rear option. My 26 spline carrier only turns one wheel. I was told when I bought the car it was a posi. I havent pulled the cover to see whats going on with it. I have a extra 7.5 complete rear end that im going to do the set up in. I dont want...

    7.5 rear suggestions

    From what ive read and researched the 4x4 ones are 1/2 longer, so I dont know how this would effect if you have drum brakes, If you were running disc then it wouldnt be a problem just have to move the caliper bracket. The 2 wheel drive ones are 2" too short so I dont think they will work at all...

    Tranny & rear end upgrade

    I bet those are hard to find also? Is that the 8.5 g body rear end only or will the earlier camaros work also?
