    Do what you gotta do man, better keep us updated on this one even if it isn't a Honda. 3.73's? Boo! I'm assuming this is supposed to be staying in the DD realm, but some 4.11's might do the trick?

    I've messed with older Chevys for decades too. Look into a 200r4 from an "actuall" monte SS or a hurst olds/ GN. the valve body is different and you can hammer on them and still have a nice .68% overdrive. (I actually have the one from my 72, Level-10 builds them to handle up to 1000hp.)The 87's (HO)started with the roller cams also.

    It will bolt right in. You just have to make holes for the crossmember needs to go back about 4", and use a vacume switch for the lockup.
    I had a posi 3.33:1 and at 72-75 I was only turning 2300r's with 225-60-15's
    I have a never fired 406 that should be around 430hp if interested??
    Extra 4bolt blocks, extra rebuilt tranys too. (it was supposed to go in the 72)

    It's nice to have that torque instantly, and not waiting til 4-6grand..

    Good luck with it. and if i can help, i'll try

    I even know of a white Monte sitting nearby in a shed. Or another guy that has a Regal "T" Type that he was stripping.. (I wanted the drivetrain for my 87 Conquest. Heck, I even have extra V6 blocks/parts)

    well im probably going to stick with the newly rebuilt 350 thats in it..and TH350 trans arent that bad..i ran one in my racecar and it worked like a charm..even with my shitty 242 or was it 252? gears..
    ive been looking into a cam for it..i dont know..we have a 355 with shaved heads.decked black.rods,stock pistons,completely balanced,blue printed and every single gasket and everything was port matched..its sitting waiting to be put back together but that motor kicked ass.id like to put it on my car but i dont have the 10k my moms bf wants for it..
    as for a job and all that..its all coming slowly

    I dunno man, if you're unhappy with the way things are going right now I'm not sure getting a new project was the right idea. Especially because cars almost always cause frustration. Is it driveable as-is?

    you can always have two hobbies, you can always use what you learned with hondas and use it with the chevys!

    just two months ago i tuned my dads truck with a wideband and a screwdriver. lol

    Get ready to enjoy half the mpgs as any Honda. Even in the muscle car realm these things are considered guzzlers. Still awesome cars though.

    I've got a Comp extreme 268 (BNIB) with lifters if your looking for a mild cam. You only need a 2400-2600 converter.
    Bypass that radiator, use a external trans cooler and some good synthetic atf.
    OH, check the converters end that goes into the pump. If it's got chatter marks, you may want another pump/converter. Easy to change out without too much problem.
    There are aftermarket gearsets that will deepen your first gear also so you can increase it about 20+% for first if you run it at full weight of about 3900lbs with you in it.
    I have the EX284 in the 406 with trickflow heads. I thought of boring out the lifter bores and using AMC ones to make full use of a steeper(quicker) cam. ( I'm still waiting on roller cams to come down for a retro kit)

    I thought you already OWNED the car..?
