    I am rebuilding the TH-350 in my Camaro and I'm looking for some professional advise. I really appreciate any input I receive that will help me complete this part of the restoration. A few questions I have in mind are:

    1. Should I rebuild this one or is there another transmission that would be better for
    street/strip that won't break the bank
    2. If I keep the TH-350 are there any mods I could do that would improve the performance such as a shift improver kit

    That's all I can think of for now but I'm sure more will come up along the way. The heat and humidity are bad right now so i'll probably put a window unit in my shop and work on the trans in there. Gotta run for now...thanks!!

    go to the stickys....JAKE SHOE ..tranny guru did some serious write ups there. (i'm a th400...so a little different)
    They are pretty straight forward .... especially if you know the tranny is in good working order already ;)!!!
    1st and most important ?......whats in FRONT of this tranny 300 ft/lbs torque or 600 ft/lbs.... horsepower is irrelevant... torque BREAKS stuff.....HP just spins quick.
