Parrot Head is right about Ponchos and torque. It really depends on how hard you want to launch too. Street or strip. Occasional tire burning or E.Ts at the strip. If you are like most of us you should look into ParrotHeads advice and load up the suspension components with the best. Another company I have found for my 68 Camaro (cousin to the Bird) is GlobalWest in California. They have some great componnents that replace the stock ones with heavy duty. I personally don't like slappers or traction bars. I found a great set of springs to replace my worn out originals did the trick for me. But then my 68 is 450hp and set up for the street. Good luck and stay close to guys that own cars like yours.
