8.2 question

I have an 8.2 and am planning to have a blower on my engine soon. I would like to know if i change to moser axles, locker, new ring & pinnion, and support cover could it handle the power? I would like to keep this rearend as it is the original but will change to a 12 bolt or an 8.5 if i must.

If you don't go with slicks or too much overboard with wide tires with good traction you shouldn't have a problem with your 8.2.

If you notice any problem it will only get worse, and parts replacement after that will only repeat itsself later.

If you do decide to swap, go for the 8.5 and all the goodies on the first try.

Or you could go the ford 9 inch and never look yourself in the mirror again the same way.

8.2 question

So, even if I change the axles and all that I still have to be carefull about running slicks? I have 295/50r15's on them now and they only chirp once they're hot and i floor it. Is that bad? Should i be carefull and go to a norrower tire?

Do yourself a favor and pull it out and stick it under a bench if you want to keep it original. Go find an 8.5" and put the good stuff in it and put an old style 8.2" cover on it and tell everyone it's the original 8.2. They'll never know the difference.
