Vega LS Swap Headers

Hi Folks, this is a unusual request, but you've helped me in the past. I'm working on a 71 Vega HB that's a back half car. I'm in the process of swapping a LS 6.0 in and looking for header options. I've been doing my homework on this and after looking around, it looks like there's a decent chance th...

Pinion shaft on a rack n pinion

Hi Folks, this is more of a general rack n pinion question vs specific to the gbody. Is there a way to either shorten the original pinion shaft, or purchase a shorter pinion shaft for a rack ?? In this case, it's a pinto rack. The splines are at the top of the shaft, with no splines at the bottom. I...

Re: Solid Roller vs. Hydraulic Roller Camshafts

Chris felt there was a slight advantage for street use, and since I won't be spinning crazy rpm's (7500 shift point) he felt that was the way to go. I went with his recommendation. When I asked "everything being equal, what would you do" he said go with a hydraulic roller. I just emailed him about u...

Re: Solid Roller vs. Hydraulic Roller Camshafts

Thanks for the info Tommy. I called Straub yesterday afternoon and Chris answered the phone. We spent at least a 1/2 hour on the phone as I explained my combination and he gave me alot of information. Long story short, he felt a hydraulic roller setup would be best for my combination. He's going to ...

Re: Solid Roller vs. Hydraulic Roller Camshafts

I'm in the process of building a quick (low 10's) street 30%/strip 70% car. I'm looking for information related to solid roller vs hydraulic roller cams. I've read information about solid rollers not being streetable, although some articles say that's not the case. I've also read about crane cams ne...

Re: turbo 350 trans brake install

Malibu355

Thanks for the info. The trans was recently rebuilt. When we rebuilt it, we did put the 36 element sprag and race in figuring it's a weak spot on the turbo 350's and thinking a trans brake might be in it's future.

Re: Transmission Crossmember

I've got a iceman turbo 400 crossmember with the extra frame piece for sale if anyone is interested. It's one of his earlier pieces, not the new light weight design. It definitely helps stiffen the chassis by tying the frame rails together. I never noticed any kind of sagging with it. It's a very so...

turbo 350 trans brake install

Hey Folks,

I have a turbo 350 in my bracket car. The trans is in great shape and works well. I've been thinking about trying a trans brake. What needs to be done in order to install the trans brake ?? Is it just a valve body swap ?

Thanks
