and install it correctly. Get some traction bars. Easy 12sec performance from this simple build.
Get the compression ratio correct. You want a true measured 10:1.
Thats exactly the gear i'm gonna run with an Eaton limited slip unit, i'm running one in my '69 Chevy truck and love it, already have the bars but was thinkin about fabbing a 4-link instead, don't know yet. I have my eyes on the tires I wanna run but haven't decided on them yet either completely. Do you think a 3000 stall will be ok for a long term daily driver? I wasn't plannin on turnin this motor over 5K rpms, and not alot of them.
