    jdorr's rear wide track w/7"stretch

    Would this type of configuration work with cadillac 4.9 conversion? Is the frame work strong enough for the 4.9? What type of things should i look out for in this project?

    I have a 7" stretch and the Held rear suspension on my TR. It has a 4.9L Caddy with the 4T60E Automatic, I haven't had a problem with this set-up. The Caddy motor is not strong enough to damage a well done stretch. I also have a 75hp shot of Nitrous that I rarely use. Jerry's suspension would be even stronger than mine (my opinion). Regards. Bill

    hey thanks Bill! I am familiar with stretching but lost when it comes to widening the track. Thanks again. is the 4.9 a difficult swap? Never done that either?

    I didn't do mine, I had it done at the Fiero Factory in Alabama. But from what I read and I can compare it to 3800SCII's and Northstar's, I have all 3 engine conversions in various Fiero based replicas I own the 4.9L is by far the easiest.
