A turbo 350 or a Muncie m-22?

Hi, I have a '70 model c-10 pickup and i cant decide whether i want to keep the 350 turbo or put in a Muncie M-22 4 spd. If anybody has any suggestions please let me know. Theres nothing wrong with the turbo 350 but wouldn't the Muncie be better? This truck used to be a stick,but the guy that had it before me put in the t350. The m-22 came out of my old chevelle about a month ago, so i know everything works fine. The only reason i would put in the Muncie is because this truck is about to get a 383 and i don't think the t350 will hold up to the power. I also have a ford 9in that i might put in too.

hmmm... this is a tough one... if youu got a M-22 lying around and all the parts to put it in, eg... bell, clutch, flywheel, pedal, linkages, shifter, piviot balls, etc... then it maybe a worth while investment. but if you already have a T350 in there, that is a decent tranny as well. last time i checked, the M22's were going for top dollar. out here they run in the neighborhood of $1500 rebuilt, $600 needing a rebuild... but they are strong from what i understand. way out of my budget, so i stick with the T350 in my 77 c10 and my 63 nova once that is going.

I voted M22. I would never, EVER choose an automatic over a manual, unless it was in a family car/SUV. For your truck, and any old car, I would go with the manual...but then again, that's my opinion.

The Muncie would be OK if you have some deep rear end gears, but if you have something like 3.08's, it would be a PITA to get rolling from a dead stop.

A stock weight c10 would need 4:88s or deeper to make the clutch live. If you must go stick what about a saginaw? 2:93 or 3:11 first instead of 2:20 in the m22. If you break a sag you'll break a t350. Pedal cars are for children.

m-22

i just recently went from a m-20 to a th350, only because i kept blowing gears! the automatic holds up fine, but i feel lame with the th350... who in the hell just wants to push the gas and go? thats not driving, thats cruzing!

even tho i blew 2 m-20's, the 6 months of it being a manual was WAYYYY funner to drive than the th350.

cant down shift from 3rd to 2nd and get sideways while your doing 40 MPH with a th350!

so in the end, if your building this car for your grandma ...sure, put the auto in it, but if your planning to have some fun with it, use the m-22.

With some very slight mods to the valve body you can. I run a manual valve th350 and LOVE it. I shift every gear with alot less work. ;-)
