Your car has the 8.5 10 bolt in it with 28 spline axles. I have built a lot of these for Camaros and Novas. These are strong rear ends if you build them right. I recommend a 30 spline Eaton Posi, 30 spline Moser axles and quality gears and installation kit, such as Yukon. This will handle 500 HP in a street car. You MUST not allow the tires to wheel hop. This will break even the best rear end.
