I plan on building a real mild 383 maybe 400 HP for my 86 MCSS and am curious as to how well I can expect the 200R to hold up. I dont plan on drag racing the car. Or run a tire any stickier than a street radial.

If it probably wont hold up, what can I expect to spend on one that will hold ?

I plan to change the trans regardless so I can keep the original one stored away. Just need to know what to go with. Even considering a Richmond 5-6 spd.

I am a big fan of the straight shift set up for cruising. I have read that the 200 metric is now being used in stock class racing with success. Art Carr is supposed to be the master at the 200r4. Maybe Steve will come on here and shed a little light on the subject. I really like to shift for myself in the situation you are pursuing. Years ago I had a 79 cutlass with a 454 and a 4 speed on the street and had a lot of fun.

They will hold up to quite a bit when beefed up properly. You got to remember the Grand National had this transmision and you guys know how fasy some of those are, I have seen those 3400 LB turbo cars go 6.40's in the eighth off the transbrake with the 200 4R. So I think it is all in preparation \:D/
