Don't sweat the auto, you can easily make it a real tire burner. My 305 in my C2500 has a similar combination. It's a factory-rated "235hp" 305 with a 4L60E behind it. 14 bolt SF with Gov-lock and 3.73 final drive. It put a hurt on my buddies 87 Mark VII LSC with the 5.0L HO (not the regular lame 5.0L most Mark VII's came with) all the way up to 60 mph. That's in a 3/4 ton extended cab truck with 31" tires. The strong first gear and steep final drive can easily make these cars little jackrabbit "light-to-light" cars.
