owch!!!

i was going to say stroke it and use a ton of compression leaning towards 114-116 octane.

i hate NO2 but are you guys allowed to use nitrous if so then that is what i would build for, a decent 2 stage with around 200-300 shot on each.

bulding a low 10 sec small block whether it be ford, chevy, or mopar is not going to be easy without a ton of compression or a ton of NO2

Do a search and find the thread about lightening the car and do every one of those tricks, pulling stuff off the car and drillings holes in bumper brackets is cheap speed.

Good point, thats old school fast, big compression, big cam and race gas. Nobody said it has to be street friendly

$10,000 in just the engine?? Yes you can, easily. 10 grand in car with engine and driveline will ba a little tougher, you will have to hunt Craiglist, etc for bargains on some stuff.
