NOVA: Powerglide or Turbo 350?

Hey boys. I have a 71 nova with a 350 in it and a 2 spd powerglide tranny...a friend of mine told em to go wit a turbo 350 and get a shift kit for it....Another friend told me just to get a shift kid for my powerglide. i want to be runing mid 12's at the track one day and iam looking into getting new heads, edelbrock 750 manuel choke carb and manifold. looking into a holley strip dominator. or i might just go with a holley 780 duel feed...with my manifold i have in now....kinda not sure what to do, but want more out of my 350...and i was thinking the transmission might be a factor

Well its a bit of a question for what you want to use it for, a power glide will often be faster in a car 3000lbs or lighter (with a very high stall converter) but that will also be a miserable combo for the street not to mention the power glide would have to be built well. For street driven cars gears are you friend and turbo 350's are great trannies they can take alot of power shift nice and are cheap to build. Its a fairly easy swap to from the powerglide to the thm350 so if you are planning to use it for street use as well as racing my nod goes to the 350.
