    Hey guys need some discusion to decide what I am going to do. First my blaze 10" of lift using Dogde springs 38" tires fenders cut way out got lots of flex (can't go to a bigger tire) I have a TH 350 203 The trans is toast also have a TH 400 that had a 208 behind it. As the result of a recent accident I need to get this beast going but don't want to "junkyard repair" it. Should I build the 350 or get the stuff to do a 205 with the 400 how about a 400 with a 203 What do you guys think I not only need a good solution but a cost effective one. Any ideas welcome

    The question is how much can you spend, and what do you already have. I can see that you have a 203, do you have a 205? You could go t400/203-205doubler. There are plenty of options. Myself, I don't have much so I would have to rebuild my trans if it breaks. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    the 350 should be fine with a 350/383 engine. but if you want pure strength try and do the 400/205.
