BigDaddyJC Posted April 3, 2007 Share Posted April 3, 2007 New to the forum. Starting a new project with the following stuff. Need advice and any info. that would help me get this going.

Hooker block hugger headers Tranny: Turbo 350 with HD race clutches and shift kit. Stock converter. WIth all this listed, what can I expect to have to modify on the car to hold up to this engine/tranny setup? I want to keep it a streetable vehicle with good gripping street tires. Not really planning on running drag slicks on the car cause I want to try to keep the stock rear end under the car as long as possible. Any advice, or suggestions on the car body, suspension, frame modifications is greatly appreciated. I am going to be doing all this work myself. Jim C.
