Hello all, I just bought my first Nova last week!! I'v been looking for a car that I can build up over time, so I can go Drag Race with my dad. I picked up a 1973 Hatchback with the 307 and Turbo 350 trans. I practically stole it for the price I got...though the engine runs strong the trans seems to be shot. My plan for now, as I am getting ready to enter medical school and won't have the $$, is to keep the 307, which the previous owner said has a little work done, forged pistons, intake, manifold, carb..., hook nitrous up and get a racing trans.
My first question is, my dad recommend the TCI Streetfighter transmission with a manuel valve body. But that is a lot of money for me, is there a kit you can buy to build up the transmission I have now to make it that strong?
By the way our goal for the car is 12.50 with the 307.
Any comments and sugestions would be greatly appreciated. I cant wait to get the car going strong! And to learn a ton along the way :)
