rear end

I am getting my 350 motor converted to 383 stroker, do I have to switch out the rear gears?

Gears

It all depends on the weight of the car and what type of driving your going to do. Go like crazy light to light or cruise comfortably. 3.55 is a good all around gear. Oh yeah, it depends if you have an overdrive transmission or not.

Good luck

A posi and 3.55 gears would make it a fine overall ride. What about the transmission?
