JMO, sell the original to a purist, put the money towards a 9in. ( I hear the bashing already) and have the piece of mind that a 9in. will handle any street power you throw at it in the future. I run a QP housing and axle package (Moser 31 spl.axle) and a locally sourced 9in. from a mid 70's 4x4 Ford pickup. Sold the housing, which paid for most of the cost of the rebuild kit of the 9in Traction Lock, a F--D friend helped with the rebuild of the 3rd. member. Much cheaper than a first gen Camaro or 68-72 Nova 12 bolt , orig. or from the aftermarket.good thought for sure. I'm debating if i do something like this or have a 9" built for it and be done with it. That way if my power goals change down the road, i'm good.
