Transmission swap

It took me way too long to get the transmission in house. I planned to swap the powerglide (2 speed) with a turbo350 (3 speed) transmission which is much more common. They are identical sizes, so the same driveline will work. It is about the easiest transmission upgrade to do. It turns out transmissions are a seasonal item on craigslist, so I had to wait out the winter to find a good cheap core to trade in on this newly rebuilt unit. Completely built to handle more power and torque. It will be mated to the 383 via a 2500 RPM stall converter to match the needs of the new cam setup. I found a rebuilder for the transmission who specializes in the TH350 and rebuilds them regularly to support his racing habit. It was only $400 plus exchange (cost me $25 for a used one to trade in) If you need a good transmission guy, let me know.
