81 Camaro - Trans Swap - Ideas?

Hi All,

So I have an 81 Camaro 468bb 575hp tied to a th400 3500 stall.

Want to see what you guys though would be the “MOST AFFORDABLE” way to change the transmission to have an either over drive or go with a manual (4,5,6 speed) and what transmission do you recommend (700r4, 4l60e, 4l80e, T10, T56,) something else??

The highway driving in this thing is killing me with the th400!

Thanks
JC

Built 200r would be my choice. Get a high quality 9" converter none are cheap that are good. Use the biggest cooler you can fit

I vote 3 pedals. TKO 5 speed. Personal pref is T56 6-speed due to highway driving. Your call.
