Default Fellow GM Hot-rodders!!! Need Some Advice!

My mustang got in a little wreck and I found a 92 trans am for 340 bucks. I bought it before even looking at the odomoter. I got going down the road and i looked down and saw it only had 113xxx miles on it.

But anyways back to my question,

I want to put a 350 LT1 fuel injected motor into it, can i still run the tranny that's in it now?

No the tranny has the wrong locking tourque converter.
I had the 5.0 92 Camaro and was thinking t he same thing,
Theres so much to change. its easier cheapr and less headaches to find an lt1 3rd gen.

And if you have the manual trany, it will not handle the torque for long. That is why you could only get the 350 with an automatic. As it was I had issues withe the manual trans in my 91 formula.

Swap in a Big Block Buick 455 with a 200R4 trans. The BBB is only about 50# heavier than a SBC . It'll fly and you won't have all the electronics to deal with.

I'd sell the Pontiac & use the profit to fix the Ford.

What year Mustang, and how bad is it?

You want a Cuda ? I know where there's a '64 convertible that's up for grabs. Last time I asked about it (4 yrs ago) he wanted 11,000 Needs some resto but overall not to bad.

The engine in it is either a 305 or 350. The transmission will have the same bell housing. As for the torque converter, the only difference will be the stall. If you have the 305, you will have a medium stall. The 350 will be a low stall converter.

So yes, it will work, but if you are going to put a FI motor in it, you may as well put a 4L80E in it which will last you much longer as they are pretty bullet proof. Painless wiring should sell the wiring and computers to make both the engine and trans work.

No, I said a 'Cuda. That's a Barracuda. 70-74 for me. I have had several, but I did have a '70 Barracuda Gran Coupe, which is still an "E" body.

Here is a pic...

That 200-4R will not handle a lot of power with out heavy modification. If you want a manual, buy a Tremec.

Yes, but when they're done right they are nice! I love a stick, but most of our crusin' is in the city and I hate pushing on a clutch all the time. My fused ankle complains alot when I do.

What do you all think of a TH400 for his application? Works just fine with the 350 small block in my '70 Chevelle.

TH400 is the non-electronic predecessor of the 4L80E and would be a suitable choice from a strictly "mechanically capable" standpoint.

That's what I'm running in my 462ci powered Buick GS. Bulletproof so far.
