<><><> At the beginning it will be the mildly modified '80 Olds 350.
A TH-425 would take anything you could through at it and is capable of mounting to 79-85 Eldo/Toro/Riv halfshafts with adaptors. The 82-85 TH-325 4Ls are a little weaker than the 79-81 3 speeds but you do get a nice overdrive and torque convertor lockup.
<><><> True. But for $100, I got a running donor car, with a TH-315, and 350 Olds. I am sticking with what I have.

> Be sure to put a shift kit in it and cross your fingers.<><><> Shift kit is a given. I have talked to some people who drag race Rivieras regularly. They say a Th-325 will hold up. But a TH-3254l will not. Besides I won't be dragracing. I just want an nice littel economy car.
