I used a 200 4r for my nova. Its just about the same as the gp for length. I didn't have to shorten the drive shaft. I just move the cross member back to the next holes and redrilled a couple of new ones. My nova is a 1977 which is different than yours. I rebuilt mine myself and added extra clutches. I rebuilt and upgraded it to a ten vane pump and relieved it. I also put in large boost valves. I love it. But i agree, if your going to keep 3.08 gears, there is no sense for an overdrive. Mine is 350 hp 355 ci with 3.73 10 bolt poss. Now i have my low gears for street and highway gear for traveling.
