I want to put a powerglide in the Hot Rod. This is what I have wanted to do since the switch from a manual to a auto trans.
My Hot Rod is a track only car.
I want the best trans set up I can have. I need to have the car run the number(what ever it is 6.70's to 7.20's 1/8 mile) everytime down the track.
I like the fact that if I put a PG in her I only have to make one shift. This means more consistant runs :p
My trans guy said he can make me a manual shift power glide if I bring him back the turbo 350 that has only 1 pass on it. I will not have to pay any extra money for the glide. He even said he can make the glide use my turbo 350 convertor that only has 1 pass on it.
What do you guys & gals think?

if he is willing to make you a glide for the cost of your 350, then it isnt a very stout glide he would be making
also i would not use your 350 converter with the glide. to get the car off the line with a 1.72 first gear you will need some more RPM off the line than what the 350 combo called for (nevermind, just noticed you already have a pretty high stall speed)
personally, i think a glide is the way to go. especially in a high HP car that is hard to control the first few hundred feet
Dedenbear case, Rossler Pro power glide with a Rossler pro trans brake. 1.96 1st gear with 4.86 gears out back.
Very consistant tranny for bracket racing. I have the PRO Bandit shifter for the power glide but this shifter is challanging to install to say the least. I would use the Pro Ratchet for the power glide if I had to do it over again.
Coach The majority of the big buck footbrake racers use powerglides. When my 4l60e gives me trouble i'm going with a glide. I enjoy the win light on in my lane more than going a little quicker But you'll have to change your sig to Coach 02 A2 Z28. Frank95z
