    Ok guys i have recently bout a 71 or 72 stock 350 sbc with a th400 tranny that came out of a c20 long bed pickup and am going to put it in a 1985 camaro and was wondering what kind of HP i can expect to the rear wheels and it is a POSI thanx to a mini spool nothing special just a lil toy. Just wondering what to expect in HP, and 1/8th mile times. thank you

    A 85 Camaro has a torque arm. YOu better have an after market torque arm b/c the TH400 won't work as the stock TQ arm hooks to the tranny. and where did you get a mini spool to fit the 7.5 rear end or do you have a non-stock rear in it?
