they didnt break as often.if your combo needs the torque of the 400 1st gear that is why you would slow down.engine power,weight of the car and rear gearing/tire should be looked at.in the faster cars they pull the gearing down inside the trans and also adjust rearend gearing.did cars go faster or slower?
yes he has some powerbut it really is about the overall combo.i def wouldnt put a glide in a heavy car with no rear gear and no power that would kill it for sure.but the right combo it will go good and lastOh I'm definitely not saying it won't work just from what I've seen over the years it's better to have three years and pull timing your Boost out and play with that instead of spending a lot of money on a tranny in and out working like you hoped but I will say this I bet your friend's car makes a whole boatload of power and that is a little different ballgame
dont forget about the converterYeah I agree with you on that and hopefully it will be going to be a 3.060 stroke I'm not sure how well it will work but I think like you're talkin about with the right gearing could be a beast probably going to have to Zing it to the moon but that's okay
Nice! Boy, you can tell the guy introducing Earl is not from anywhere near South Louisiana (as he has no idea how to say Schexnayder)! Schexnayder Racing is where the big boys go to get their game face on! At least in this neck of the woods it is anyways!
I listened to this(I know it is to watch) and kinda think a powerglide with a gear vendors overdrive would work good with a new iron block Kenny Betts block( http://www.v8buick.com/index.php?threads/the-new-wildcat-hd-cast-iron-block-from-kenny-betts-racing.338429/ ) with a turbo. You know fer Drag Week or that rocky Mountain drag week.
