    Drivetrain & Performance
    I've got a 74 nova with a 250 L6/3 spd Saginaw/8.5 10 bolt. I've looked at this a couple of ways and want to build the car in segments as money allows starting with the engine. With that being said I want to run the 3 speed for a while. It’s in great shape and shifts smooth, has a Hurst Indy...

    Drivetrain & Performance
    Since I am new to this I need advice on an engine and tranny set up. I know a fellow that has a 327, 300HP, with a moderately built TH 350. The engine is 100% complete and already mated to the tranny. He is asking $2000 for the combo and I am not sure if that is a deal or not. Once I buy the...
