Hello everyone, I just bought a '73 Nova with a 307 and TH 350 trans. My goal is to get into the 12:50's. The motor is not the fastest but I plan on making that up with nitrous...My question is how well can the stock 350 trans and converter hold up to about 350hp?

well when I bought the car the trans was already slipping... so I was wondering if I should save money and just have it rebuilt to stock or spend the money and get stronger clutch plates etc. I appreciate the help...

Cost of a better clutches or even changing to a second gear 5 or 6 disc clutch pack is not that much money.

Have it done correct. Also have a good sprag gear installed.

You will be fine past 350hp mark!

Will the stock converter be able to handle a 100 shot of nitrous, or should I get a stronger one? And if so what do you think you be a good converter for my set up?

the tranny might be fine for a little while on a stock build but th350's like to burn up in high gear if you beat on them alot. also the spags in them are week so if you going to rebuild it put a little more money in it and you will be alot beter off.

How long did they tell you it would take before they send it?

I ordered mine 3 weeks ago and it still hasn't been shipped:mad: I called them yesterday and left a message and still haven't heard from them. He told me this week middle of week, nothing. I'm getting nervous. Anybody else have anything to add with dealing with *******?
