Tie-bar lifters exist for the conversions. Theyre not cheap, but the lower end of those run the risk of being trash in todays economy. Havent heard anything bad about Howards yet.
Best bet would be to get a 86-up 350, ditch the heads if theyre swirl ports, have a shop magnaflux them if theyre Vortecs. Keep an eye around swap meets, but dont count on getting lucky there. 5.3s are LS based, the Vortec SBCs were only 305s and 350s.

200s have a lower numerical gear ratio for 1st which lends itself better for drag strip use, but both the 700 and 200 require some upgrades in hard parts to hold torque. 200s are more of a fine art, and 700s tend to be a minefield in the aftermarket.
Couple tips: clutches and a shift kit dont make a transmission capable of holding 700hp, and stay far away from Monster Transmission. If you go 200, stick to the known turbo Buick builders.
4L60E is a waste, requires wiring. The 4L60 (no E) is just a 700R4 with a different designation.

If I say this once, Ill say it a thousand times: for the price of a G-Body 8.5, find a Fox 8.8, rebuild it, get a swap kit, get 5 lug axles, stick to drums and be done.

That's an exaggeration, I'm 34 years old and 34 years can you imagine how many cars I've seen in my life compared to the ones you've built? Not possible.. ground yourself to reality man.

Why you trying so hard to run me out of the forum with your "good old boy attitude" ? Like a woman you're twisting my words, sure I said there's a bad apples here and this is the only place I've experienced them, but it's clear that I also said that there are good apples here who did help me..

Since you can't seem to read, the reason why I'm here is because this is a G-Body specific forum, and believe it or not I own a G body... it's not a math problem bro.

Didn't you try to follow me over the Hotrodders and tried to start the same s*** there and got ran off?... pretty sure that was you lol.

But anyways regardless of what you're talking about right here and right now, you can f*** all the way off...

I'm not even going to respond to your comments to entertain your clown *ss or anybody else with that attitude.

How about that ? ...officially ignored.

Have had it up and running the last two years because of advice from 1,000's of others in other forums and other online resources...
Last thing I posted here I believe was late 2021-2022 about a camshaft replacement but left it unfinished...so I'll catch you up on everything I've worked on after...
You were in here like 6 months ago with wiped cam and trying to put things together with RTV and no bolts and crying that you had no money whilst arguing with anyone who tried to give you advice.

What are you talking about?

That was me taking some time to give the guys there a heads up to not waste their time. You've established yourself here already. We know you. Enjoy. :)

Would the '86 and up 350 have a roller cam setup ?
200s are more of a fine art, and 700s tend to be a minefield in the aftermarket.
So 200r4 over 700r4... what made the 700 a minefield ?

That different designation with the 4L60, was it for better or worse from the 700 ?

Fox 8.9 ? The Ford 9" ?

Too much time on your hands if you ask me.. don't you have a wife or kids or a job or more cars to build than I've seen to make up for your lost time?

You could have made that bulletin and left, but instead you try to persuade others for a good week or so before they started calling out your b*******, you couldn't gain any fan base or cheerleaders for your team, and you stopped logging in..that is how it really happened, be honest now.. 不

Clearly I didn't waste their time since I've been there.. everything that I just showed you and told you was because of them.. they're just more intelligent and have a better understanding of teaching then you and others here.

But like I said dude no matter how big your fan base gets here, I can give a f*** less about what you negative guys have to say if it's anything other than advice and help... you're only doing that so other members will read that b******* and it's an attempt to get them to join your team to hate on me.. what a f****** girl.

Good to know I have a fan base, for better or for worse, I guess...仄撾不丹撾荊

Below is why we think you are a waste of time...

Fox 8.9 ? The Ford 9" ?

I literally can't facepalm hard enough right now..丹儭

The guy said 8.8.. not 8.9, and it's totally different from the 9". Literally stuff you can Google and there's even links in this group here of how to put one in the Gbody.

I don't have any kids so that's why I'm not here spoon feeding you the simple stuff that's been beaten into the ground. That and at 34, yea you should know this stuff by now if you've been in the hobby.

I don't even care what you can respond to me with the above, you are here wasting people's time so I'm going to call it out until you leave. Call me a clown *ss, take a good look in the mirror..不

Clearly I didn't waste their time since I've been there.. everything that I just showed you and told you was because of them.. they're just more intelligent and have a better understanding of teaching then you and others here.
不不不 we are all dumb fellas..
