Default Monte Carlo ss bracket and stocker

Well here we go again, I've decided to build myself another race car after swearing off the evil curse. Problem with being a drag racer it never leaves your blood, you just come back for more. I have a Monte Carlo that has been suffering from neglect, which started after my divorce eighteen years ago, I made the mistake of leaving at a friends place, which went from sitting on cement to a grass field. I don't have to tell you about floor rust but there is a lot of it.This is a 1983 Monte Carlo ss bought in January before they were available, this was a special order from my friend through his dealership to General Motor. It's number 004 out of 500, which to me doesn't mean anything because when it becomes valuable I'll be dust around Indianapolis home of the U.S. National(parts anyways)lol.I have a new floor and trunk pans,12 bolts rear end from an older race car project.Drag shocks, brakes from Aeromotive, I'll have my engine built by a former U.S. National winner, A1 trans and I'll ask Mark Yaccavone help with choosing a convertor. Hope Billy Nees will kick in some wisdom on a cheap build, I hope. Anyways since I'm retiring I have to save my pennies, I'll be mostly going to my local track and the occasional BTE Footbrake races. I'm going to maybe to some stock races but that won't be until I'm good with this car. Talking about my Monte Carlo ss it's was not only my ex-wife ride to the groceries but a very potent race car, actually my best earning car. I won two Race of Champions in Montreal one in Sanair and the other in Napierville,with wins in Syracuse and Luskville the car did well. Lots of work in front of me.I'm cleaning my old shop and getting in a lift since I'm feeling those bending exercises. My first question what steering box to return to manual from power steering. I'll be posting pictures soon.Thanks

Sure, I'll help you if I can.
But, I think it probably has two too many cylinders ;-)

Mark, I know you've worked on more than four in your life time. I was thinking of you with the new Mustang with it's four cylinder with turbo, you would be probably the first in the eight's with it.lol Thanks.

Don't think you got my drift...We're talking Chevys here, not FFFords

Sorry guys I've put my Monte Carlo ss on ice in the back of my shop. I just bought a 94 z/28 Camaro that a gent had put about $17k in it, and I bought if for $1k. I tried to buy it four years ago but he wouldn't budge on the price, i bought from a kid who bought it, drove it for a month and put it outside for the past three years(the 750 Double pumper Holley was costing him too much in gas) the body is perfect just needs cleaning. I've got work to do on it. He let water get in the carb but from what I can see the oil is clean but i will take the engine apart anyways, clean turbo 400 with A1 torque. The rear is a GM 9bolts Borg Warner out of a IROC, very though rear end(I also have a Dana 44 out of a Camaro) This will be a street and strip car(Bracket Only car)I will put the stock eliminator car aside for now. I will chronicle my build if anyone is interested.
