355hp at the crank makes about 290 at the wheels.

A 3200 pound car with a 200 lb driver makes 3400 pound total weight.

This setup should run 103 mph in the 1/4 mile, which should be good for a 13.6, depending on traction.

13.6 with a 350, 3.42 gear and a 2000 stall.

A 79 camaro with 355 buiilt with edelbrocks RPm heads, cam, intake 750dp a TCI 3000 stall 4.10 gear 28" tire was in the low 14's . That is a 420hp package.

My old 70 cuda 440 crysler 906 big heads with a 3500 stall 4.10 gear DOT 26" tire build as a drag race only ran a 13 flat. Gone not forgotten.

I am driving a supercharged E force c10 305 vortec 906 heads with 3.73 gears 28" tires and 3000 stall that might be in the low 14's .

My trailer queen current 71 cuda 440 2.18/1.81 valves 4 speed is built to the moon, and ran a supposed 13.9 with a 3.23 gear 265/50/15's . Made over 500 flywheel hp on the engine brake dyno .

You guys got some fast cars. Don't get hung up on the numbers.
