I have an 84 Camaro, it's a plane jane. It came origional with a 2.8l v6 with 4 speed tranny. I want to know what for gears, and rear end came with that style of Camaro.
I have a 350 with th350 tranny in it now.

since you had a 4 speed, this makes it easy, you have a 3.42 rear end, the five speeds all had different gear ratios depending on the engine.

No, they never made an 8.5 that fits a 3rd generation F-body.

CamArrow the rear end will hold up to a fair amount of horses. they put the same rear in grand nationals and t/a's and so on. i am running a s10 with a stout v8 and have no probs at all. hope this helps.
