To do this will probably require runnin' in the 8's in the quarter mile, so $40,000 to $50,000 should do it, if you do most of the work yourself. When I was chief tech inspector at Firebird, I had several customers who would drive in off the street, change tires and go run 8's all night long. It's not as rare as you might think.

Fastest , like 10'seconds.

4.88 gears
3000max weight
11:1
245/245 .557/.557 lift cam mechanical
Single plane or tunnel ram 2 x750's
lightweight everythng
tuff parts
Perfect stall
28" slicks

That sounds about right for 10.5's if you want faster the car should be closer to 2100lbs weight.

Hey mijaries,

If you are new to engines like any newbie, you wana read up on some good books such as the ones listed in this wiki: "Chevrolet Engine Rebuild Guide Books and DVDs". These recommended regularly by the more experienced members on this forum.


Once you've read some of these, you'll have a better idea of how an engine works, what kind of a set up you should be looking at for a street car, and that it takes more than just the engine to put the power to the ground.


Once you have a better idea, you'll have lots more questions to ask.


Good luck!

Excellent advice, LT1. And to the OP- don't get carried away w/compression. Even w/a big-A cam, this is race gas territory and we ain't talking peanuts when it comes to cost if this is a street machine. That's roughly 94 per mile @ $7.50/gallon and 8 MPG.

I'm wondering why you abandoned the other thread you started on this? You need to answer the questions asked there- if you are serious about this.
