No one running the BOP 2 speed. Let's break this down though, in my 67 tempest 6cyl, it came with a Buick ST300 (Super Turbine) 2 spd. Now, normally if something is buick it's a stout setup and not lightweight, but it did back a 6 cylinder which i THINK had a different bell pattern than the best of the BOP family. (i had the OHC pontiac 6).

Then there's the powerglide, of chevy fame. Tons of powergilde are of course used in racing.

I don't know if a powerglide ever came in BOP, others can answer. But i can tell you that the ST300 is a different tranny, parts don't interchange. Be sure which one you get.

Nope Chuck, just old body guy's and shade tree mechanics. Saw one glide in a first gen bird convertable, white. All i remember is the big underbody plate was a PITA. The TH 350 and 400 stuff is interchangable with correct tail shaft length. Dont see why a glide would be any differant. Just less parts.

I think he's asking if you can use beefed up powerglide parts inside the ST300 to make it stronger. Am i wrong there chuck?

The BOP 2 speed was used behind small V-8's too. The last one I saw was in a 65 Skylark with a Buick 310 engine.

Bowties are for Pee-wee Herman. "Chevy": even the name sounds cheap, but not as cheap as your Pontiac will be with an LS transplant.

You can get an adapter plate already to put a glide behind a pontiac.

I'd think the 350 would be slightly better because shifting would keep you in the torque band?

It really honestly comes down to what kind of racing, what power level, goals, etc. Others here can give you advice on a 3 spd vs a 2 spd. I just know they're different internally.

yes bop pattern aluminum powerglides do exist,have personally seen 2.they are out there, just very rare, and hard to find.would only use one for racing,,for street plenty of options,, if you want to replace a ST300 a th350 is a very easy swap.

The PG is a different trans than the ST300. If you want a glide for some reason, go with an aftermarket bell while you're having it built up and don't waste time with the cheesy adaptor. I'm not up on the ST300's but don't believe the infrastructure is out there to build up like a glide.
