I'm in the process of restomodding my 66 coupe from a 6 cyl/auto to a 302/t5. I came across a deal on a complete 8" rear end (2.80 gear, 28 spline). I'm guessing it will require a rebuild with traction lock, 3.55 gears and new axles. Is this rear end strong enough for a 302/340 horse crate motor? Am I fooling myself by looking at an 8" rear or should i just go ahead spend the cash and order a complete Currie or Moser 9" rear ($3K+)? The car will be used for cruising, spirited street driving on occasion.

Thanks for your input.

Greg
