Bomber-3/8 mile dirt

1985 Buick Regal
350 sbc
9" Ford 350 gear

I'm told that I need a 2 speed powerglide, but they seem hard to find compared to 350 turbos. If I run a 350 turbo do I need to change my rear gear?

you are not going to find many people that run a 3.50 gear with either tranny.

Depending on the RPM you want to run.... you will need gears in the 5s or 6s & run it in drive.
