  7. Powerglide Modification

    Drivetrain & Performance
    Seeing as an engine swap in my '65 from 194ci to a 327 SBC is ineffivitable, are there any modifications that need to be done so the 2speed powerglide can handle the higher amounts of torque and horsepower of the small block engine? I am aware that I will need a new radiator and will have to...
