posi unit

HI,mine name is eduardo and Im from Aruba dutch west indies (any body familiar?)
great to be on board! ha,I have a chevy nova 1976 engine 350 stock and I m planning to change the rear end for a posi unit ,a 10 bolt from a pontiac fire bird, mine question to any one out there is it going to give me a better ride?sinds Im going to rebuilt the tranny and put a 327CID with a small street cam from comp cams its a 262 extreme energy complete kit the biggest cam for the stock component, and the transmission rebuilt is from the tci brand with the high performance clutches and a shift kit and bushings,.and also would like some recommendation for a stall converter rpm,(the cam combination)?
I have been driving around sinds , after a major ground Restoration and I have noticed that the car isn't responding that well when I launch its very Wheeling to hold the car steering, and thats why Im asking already mentioned above for enhancing the traction of the car! thank very in advance hoping to here from any of you Eduardo. :mwink:

It should ride the same if you only change the differential carrier.

Once you get the posi unit installed, be careful going around corners if the road is wet. If you try to accelerate in a corner when the road is wet, the rear tires of a car with posi will tend to lose traction more easily than with a standard (open) rear end.

The eaton unit is not that aggressive of a unit, If you drive responsibly they work fine in the rain.

Comp's XE262 RPM range is 1300-5600 so it will work with a stock torque converter. You could try a stock converter listed for a Corvette that came with the TH350 trans for a little higher stall. Cheaper then buying an aftemarket converter.
