My 1977 nova had the 305 350 tranny with the 2.56 gears. NOw i have a built 355 200 4r 3.73 gears in it. Its a blast to drive in town, but i've got the better highway gear because of the overdrive. My toy only gets about 500 miles a year put on it and thats in town. I only take it out a couple of times a year to the big city. My tranny was not good, so I just built my 200 4r for a replacement because it gave me that option. I knew they were not as good as the 350 in stock form, so i built it up with the extra clutchs, bigger valves, stronger pump, widder band and ect. It"s a toy but it's been fun. I would recommend the 200 4r; maybe the 700 is better, but that is the way i wanted to go. I bett that 2.56 gears and 200 4r would not hardly let the motor get into its power band.
