If your car is a true SS you have a 12 bolt. if not it's a 10. The 12 bolt is a heavy duty rearend and will handle the extra power of the 350 or one of the big blocks. Rebuild cost is high for one and outright is about $1000

You might want to toss in other environment variables the Camaro is subjected to when calculating things like performance with 10 or 12 bolt rear ends.
I would have to say is that there is not much difference unless your going a 150+ MPH and the differential gear cluster explodes.
The race fans aren't as likely to get hit with shrapnel if you get the 12 bolt.
I think the same gears fit in either one and it is my understanding that they are interchangeable.
Haven't worked on a car in years but I use to be a smog tech. And I have built 3 Camaro's so far. Two 67s and One 68.
Stopping by this web site has got me going on Camaros again. Thanks.
I just wrote a whole page explaining the performance issues throughout the automobile.
I'll post it later along with my favorite Camaro race story.
Good luck with your Camaro.
I just typed positraction into the msn.com search engine and found tons of resources that could help answer your questions.
