If it had a turbo 400 in it, it will have to be shorten if you put a long tail housing in it. 3 1/2 inchs If you but a short tail it will be close but would still have to messure. What trany did you have in it to start with?


its all stock so i believe its a Saginaw 3-speed with the original v6. thanks

Steven Benton

measure the trans and it will tell you if you need a long or short tailshaft 350
