hey guys new to this forum and i have a question. ive been looking for a car to start racing with my dad. nothing big just a plane jane with a mild motor that i can use for street and strip. anyway i came up on a 66 el camino with a 383 stroker and a 400 trans. my question is, should i use the 400 trans with the stroker or a turbo 350 ? and should the 400 be built to handle the 383 ? any info would be great

Well without knowing the specs of the stroker it is hard to say.
The Th-400 trans if in good working condition is plenty strong enough to handle the little 383 stroker.
