I'm gunna go a wade 1147 or simmilar regrind from Clive or jpc
And box is already built my mate runs 10s had it built for 5grand and only did dyno time and now he wants a glide,
So not 100% on all spect ATM but will b way more than what I need
He's getting all specs for me now but he runs a billet housing and a 8' converter so prob go around 3500rpm stall and a cam to suit and 3:45diff gears
But when specs come from shop that built it il throw em up!
