Doubtful, but still curious
I'm replacing the 216 in my 52 chevy (car) with a Vortec 350 that will end up at around 300 HP, with a Turbo 350 Trans out of an 82 Camaro parts car.
The '52 has the enclosed drive shaft. Can I have a drive shaft built that will hook up to the original rear end in the '52, or will I have to change it out?
If I have to change it, will the '82 Camaro rear end work, or do I need to go shopping again? I've read that some late-'70s and early '80s Camaro rears are suitable, but my '82 has coil springs and the long "traction bar" that parallels the drive shaft. I've also read that an S10 pickup rear end will work.
Thanks for the input.
