howdy y'all

so i got this HQ block and turbo 400 sitting here, which i was gonna build as a 355 but am changing my mind slowly.

my question is this;

if i rebuild this motor will the turbo 400 fit up to my tail shaft or will i need to get a new front section?

currently got a trimatic, 308, VK salisubry. and the stupid driveshaft with the center bearing.

thanks

yea new front section you might be able to just change the yoke if they are the same length

damn. the wrecker sold me the block and trans as from a VB, which i believed at the time, but thinking it is from a HQ now, since no egr on heads, and single piece tailshaft...

i wanna keep my trimatic as it has been kitted and smashes into gear the way i like it :) but was hoping to build this turbo block as a mainstay till i put pistons in my 'good' engine. messing with the tailshaft just makes it one cost too many.

all you have to do is drill and tap some new holes

you would need to mod the tailshaft to fit i just had mine shortend straightened balanced new uni's for 300 worth doing as the th400 is way stronger than a tri.
