    Chevy gearboxes

    I have a 283 in my '55 210, limited budget means an expensive 4 or 5 speed such as a tremec or Muncie is out, any idea how much power a good truck 4 speed will take..? I already have one here, it has the granny first gear so would it hold a bit of abuse or am I better off selling the S10 box or swapping it for something else..?
    Any help, advice or suggestions appreciated, its going to be mostly street use with occasional strip but the motor will probably be between 250-300 once built.
    Many thanks

    Does anyone have any experience in fitting a Getrag 290 (Jaguar) box behind a small block..? Have an option of one for £650 with the right bell housing, could probably get enough for the S10 box to pay for it, just want to make sure its a worthwhile swap....
    Many thanks to anyone

    I used to have a Cobra rep with a Cleveland that was running a 5 speed Getrag, albeit from an old 7 series BM (so I was told), worked a treat and I used to give it some beans...
