Congrats X!!!. Quite a milestone winning the last Bonneville specific COTM. Makes it quite the unique win. That said, now that we are allowing and encouraging all GM models into the contest, Other Brand owners are going to have really get their cars prepped and pretty. There is still a large field of Bonne Owners looking to take the title home. Eh?, Stealth. hehehe

These guys will hook you up for about 50 Grand !!!

Fitting the 454 without a frame rail RWD setup= impossible.

Mating a 350 with real mods/torque to an existing FWD setup= next to impossible. GM has FWD problems with every tranny in the THM series until the 4T80e, except the rare F7 variant of the Allante. The 4T80e is beefy but GM engineers only give it a 305 Ft/Lb rating. Enough for most modded 3800'* and the LD8, but serious doubts it would hold up against a strong 350. One scenario I could see is the 350 Olds/THM425 found in the old Olds Toronado. A drvietrain getting rarer everyday and will it fit up in all regards?

I have seen some pretty nice complete frame rail kits at Car shows with a new 350 for $10k. All they need is a body and alot of fabricating Love.
