This is a silly question. IF you have to ask how to build a 9 second ride, chances are you'll need a lot more than some forum advice to get there.

No stock 289 block is going to move a 5000 lb car into the 9's. Stock blocks are good to about 600 horse if you're lucky, maybe 800 with all the fill you can get on them. I wouldn't even try it with the 1300 horse its going to take to get you into the 9's, especially on so few cubes. A 460 might have a chance.

You're just not going to build a 9 second ride that gets groceries and takes the kids to school, it just won't happen.
