How fast do you think?
Hi everyone. Im 17 and I am building my first motor, I was wondering if anyone would have an idea as to how fast it would go in the quarter mile?
The motor is a 383 with 6 inch rods,9.6:1 compression ratio, afr 195 heads, comp xe 274 cam with 1.6 roller rockers a victor jr. manifold, a 600 cfm edelbrock cam, 1 5/8 headers 2 1/2 inch dual exhaust with flowmaster 40 series, hei ignition. estimate 450 hp and 500 ft lbs of torque.
The car is a 74 chevy nova 2 dr. weighs 3350 with me in it, 3.73 open differential, 245 50 r 16 radial ta tires, subframe connectors, and a 700r4 tranny with a stock convertor.
How fast do you think if I added a posi with slicks, a 750 speed demon carb, and a 3000 stall convertor?
p.s. the car previously ran a best of 14.2 at 98.9 mph with a 2.2 60 ft, dynoed 240 hp and 285 lb ft at the wheels. if that helps any?
