True, I only used 1st and 2nd gear due to the 2.56 rear end but I also had a lot more done to the engine and zero emission controls except for a PCV.
Just amazing what 3.0 liters, fuel injection, computers and good engineering can do!
It really is neat to think how far engineering in automotbiles has come. Your Chevelle is a prime example of the old school muscle. If you could travel back in time to the muscle car era and tell the world that family sedans/coupes with turbo 4cyl and V6 engines were running 13 and 14 second 1/4 mile times from the factory, no one would believe it.
