I put a 2004r in my 76. No change to the drive shaft and no change to the cross member. Got it from BowTie.
Would do it again....well worth the effort.
thought on the 200r4 that the cross member needed to be modded ? ?
Im going today to pick up a 200r4 today.. its a core im going to have built out of a 87 grand national..
SO just want to confoirm.. sorry for the hijack..
The cross member does not need to be modified.
However, you can bolt the cross member in backwards which points the tongue back. This will line it up with the TH2004R transmission mount.
This is what I am thinking......built 200R4s and 700R4s break easy when over 500hp, unless you want to pay the price of a GV to bullet-proof it....and even those break all the time. And a nice short dirve shaft.....should be a bonus rather than a concern.If you are making enough power to break a 4 sp OD transmission then that gets expensive too. Build a 200R4 or a 700R4 twice and you have the GV paid for. If you have a mild cruiser, the GV isn't the way to go. With a healthy street strip car, I would go with the GV.
