    ok so here goes my build thread for my car..
    its an 86 originally an LS..car has an entire SS front end swap.has the sway bars and everything..basically the only thing thats not SS is the trunk(doesnt have the spoiler) and possibly rearend(ill find out when the weather gets better,burnouts FTW)
    but anyway supposedly has a rebuilt 350 in it with a th350 trans..
    car has hooker headers,mr gasket electric fuel pump,mr gasket adjustable FPR,pro flow intake manifold,15" american racing wheels,and a functional 4" cowl induction hood,
    Plans are,im fixing the very little bodywork it needs and then after xmas ill be painting it metallic black(the kit i had for my rex) i probably should put some new tires on it so im going to check out what size my racecar rims were and maybe use the hankook street tires from those on the AR rims..then mount the set of hoosier slick on the racecar wheels for the track,
    overall the car is in pretty damn good condition..

    Get some 1/8" strap about 1 1/2" wide and box in your control arms in the rear. That with some poly bushings will make a BIG difference for cheap!
    Talk to the original owner to see if they still have the 200r4, and see if you can get it, have it rebuilt, you'll love it.
    I have an extra set of vortech heads too.?? I don't have the casting # right now though.

    The aftermarket has tons of stuff for the G-body!

    Good luck, PM me if you need parts. I just may have it/them

    it's probably either an LT1 (70-72), L82 (73-80), or an L81...but I doubt it's the L81

    true, I didn't even think about that chances are it's fuel injected. whenever anyone I knew did a 350 swap, even if it was injected they ripped everything out and just ran it carbed

    The guy you bought it from probably did what I said, he probably took the FI manifold and all that off and threw on the pro flo intake and a carb and called it a day.

    Looks good.

    You should throw a tuned port top end on it. They get dogged a lot, but if you setup em up right they perform.

    the only thing on the rear section that isnt SS is that there isnt a spoiler..
    at first i thought you meant the actual rear end..like the pumpkin and axles lol
