olds 307 to chevy 350 swap
May 14th, 2009, 11:01pm
 
I was thinking about swapping a chevy 350 into my 1986 oldsmobile and I was wondering what transmission I could use so I wouldnt have to get a new drive shaft.

1. WHY not go with an Olds 350? or 403? 403's are also small blocks and bolt right in... and are cooler than an Olds/Chevy hybrid... and tire frying TORQUEY!

2. If you must go Chevy, the 200-4R w/ OD from an '86 & newer Monte or Pontiac GP goes right in with the same driveshaft... as does the 3-speed TH350 or TH 200 from an '85 and earlier...

I heard you have to chop the drive shaft 3" for the 200R4

.. You should already have a 200-4R... it may be dual bolt pattern: BOP and Chevy... Cool

the only modify you will need is the back trans install,everything else will just drop into position ,change the engine installs and you might have to get headers unless your y-pipe will connect to the manifolds, it relies on which way the manifolds are curved.
