Auto is much more suttle on the drivetrain. The manual stuff tends to beat everything to pieces.Well after reading through this thread, I'm a lot more comfortable with my factory 7.5 Posi unit (freeway gears for now) in my '79 Malibu. I have the Blueprint 383 in mine and while it's 450 HP @ 6000 RPM's I'll never take it there. It's just a fun car to enjoy. The mildly built TH350 trans and rear gears will eventually be switched but I get enough enjoyment from it either way. If anything was to break with the trans or rear end then it will get moved up the list. Until then, I'm just gonna enjoy it.
this^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ is the rear
Not sure, probably wouldn't be able to tell until you "pop the cover" and get in there and root around. But I'm betting it's sturdy, high quality, and wouldn't be cheap. Make sure you use the proper lube.
is that a Quick Performance or a Strange Engineering built rear?
