maybe some 10.5/26
better off with 9x28.5 than 26 anything.
the guy building this car will likely fit big tires in there. The gear ratio will need to be adjusted to w/e tire fits in there.

with less than 28 inch tire then 4.56 gears

iirc he wanted to keep the stock frame rails, so unless he wants the 70's funnycar look/rake
295/50/15's fit tight.. and they are 10x26
28 or taller will take getting out the plasma and redo the tubs..
8" rims are about it on 15" some have got 9" under there with 17-18"
remember we are talking a car that had 195/75/14s as the stockers

The way I am thinking is these cars are known for hooking and the chance of too big tire advertizing effecting the 60'.

Still toying with some numbers.Any car is going to be a frame off ground build-up.A glide is going to be used with a 28" tire.A 9" with two center different ratios,one for the 1/8 and the other for the 1/4.Full glass treatment,doors,front end,trunk,bumpers and full Lexan as well.Body stripped to the bare bones.

Adjustable coil-overs for all fours with rear shock mount reinforced.

Costs factor of the LSx being as much or more than a BBC I think has excluded those from the running.Toss up between a SBC and a BBC still needing to run some numbers.Leaning towards a BBC with torque being a factor,but still not happy with the extra wt factor and costs of aluminum heads.Have to see what I can come up with for deals for heads from contacts.Going to talk it over with Pat Mccarthy performance to see what he has hanging around the shop.

850 or better d/p unless you already have it is 600+new and used good one 2-3 bills
msII is 230.00 and the donor ls would have everything else..
I love bbc but money to build isn't any real difference..
now not knowing the first thing about tuning efi (like me) then I can see it. as it be all new, and the only reason a 6.2ltr is sitting waiting to go in the SS ,is I'm clueless on the efi end..
