OP i would look for a new or used 350 17 or later. By the time you've added coolers to everything you'll be better off. The trans alone will be ultimately better suited and wont be a paper weight. They can be had fairly cheap now compared to brand new. Just my thoughts on this. I tried looking for PP2 but when you want to track one coolers come into play and need added and i wasn't looking for a car that needed all that right of the bat to get going here in the south.
