PONTEBONNE80 is on a distinguished road
Default just added new 3;73 gears to my bonneville

not sure what cam or convertor to go with ,,,, was thinking 2500 to 2800 stall and a cam that puts my power band from 2000 to 6500 sound ok ?

I HAVE A 1980 PONTIAC BONNEVILLE WITH A 350 OUT OF A 1968 LEMANS, IT IS 10 OVER WITH A EDELBROCK CARB AND INTAKE. IT ALSO HAS HEADMEN COMP SERIES HEADERS, THE TRANSMISSION IS A TURBO 350 WITH A MANUAL VALVE BODY AND A STREET STRIP SHIFT KIT. IT IS A STOCK REAR END HOUSING THAT HAS BEEN COMPLETLY REBUILT FROM DRUM TO DRUM AND TO BOOT A SET OF RICHMOND 373 GEARS. 90 % OF THE CAR HAS BEEN REDONE, MOTOR, TRANS, REAR END, BRAKES, LINES,FUEL CELL, ALL SUSPENSION AND STEERING. PLUS RIMS AND TIRES 235-60-15'*.



MY NEXT PLANS ARE TO PUT IN BUCKET SEATS AND A FLOOR SHIFTER AND FINALLY A PAINT JOB.
