Overdrive, rear end questions
Alright. So, I have a 455 in my goat that will pull up to 5000 rpms. It has 2.52gears in the rear end. Great for cruising, but the non-posi rear end is killing me for traction. I've also looked into overdrive units that can be bolted up to turbo 400's. Questions
What would be a good set of gears for the rear end? I'm definitely going with a posi. I want a rear end that will stand up pretty hard but still be pretty good on the street.
Also, does anyone have any experience or advice for the overdrive unit? They don't seem very cheap but I'd like a setup to where I'm not changing out rear ends for different applications (long highway trips, city driving, etc).
