Anyway, so here I am, doing some research on the McCleod aluminum flywheel....I call them up and actually talk to the OWNER.

Anyway, it's a 14lb flywheel!!!! HOLY CRAP! he said it's Same as 351 0 balanced w/gear moved forward.

He talked to me about all sorts of stuff including an adapater he's working on to put a T56 in our birds!

Anyway, does this stuff sound right to you all?

It's "basically" the same tranny as what is in the Firebirds/Cameros.

I think the 3.27s would still be good....however the gear ratio would just have to be experimented with to get optimial performance and fuel economy.
