454C10 a 240z is 2400lbs with fuel, I added another 200lbs with bigger stuff (engine, trans, exhaust, tires, radiator, diff, no2 system......) Plus I weigh in about 200lbs. So 2800lbs total car weight with driver. et is a little slow as compared to the trap speed due to slow shifts

Starting with the right tires. You can put all the torque to the ground
and leave your combo in the dust on acceleration.
You cannot make a car faster by killing off power. Like overcamming it.
The big top end will not be realized with the 292H with this exhaust system.

My car will yank the front wheels of the ground from a light in all street trim.
The way I run it at the track is the same as the street setup.
Its just that the track is the right place for that.

You want to put garbage tires with no traction on your car go ahead.
You will never make up the difference.

you do not want to or need to kill off low mid grunt.
You just need some basic traction.
this car weights almost 1000 lbs more than a 240Z w a SBC and 4 speed.
I had a 9's t/a (1988 3390 lb ) mid 10's (1980 turbo 400) , you have to rework the car to get any real traction out of that 3rd gen set up.

love to see a vid of it hanging tires on the street, on dot tires

so a 240z is 2200lb's?

runs mid 11's at 120. Being a manual shift and a weak t5, I shift the gears slow. however, runs mid 10's at 135 with I use the 150 to 200 no2 shot. 6.9 at 110 1/8 mile on n02. 71 240 zcar (datsun)

your 84 z will be happy without a little low end..
unless oh course you've reworked the whole car..
the facory set up.. a weak v6 with iroc wide tires can turn them over.lol

the car will be faster on the street with a softer lower end, that'll get you moving, roasting tires=fun but not fast

I saw the first in the early 60s, at Detroit drag way they called em 421s (4 into 2 into 1) I think they were made by Cheetah Or Black Jack! LOL

My dyno tests were in the the mid 80s! But they were really popular in the mid 70s and early 80s here! and are still produced! they were also used on a lot of Honda 750 racing motorcycles!

painted jester F birds "Y" pipe is interesting, reminds of the Tri Y headers I dyno'ed the Tri Ys! The increase in hp and torq was quite a bit more then street headers and fell just short of tuned competition headers till they entered higher rpms! over 5500rs! I guess that works on the same principle for scavenging!

I never ran shorty's either.

cobalt327 Personally I never run "shorty" headers- do what it takes to get it right.

454C10 My 2800 car (with me in it) ran trapped at 120mph in the 1/4 mile with a 292H, 200cc dart iron eagles heads, 10.5:1 350, full length headers, rpm intake, and a 3310 750 holley. 3.90 gear and T5 manual trans

That is 370 hp at the tires

beat the hell out of that engine for 10 years. cam finally when flat when they changed the oil formulation

XE284H-2300-6500, .507/.510, 240/246 @ .050, 359hp@5500 & 388 torq.

280H-2000-6000, .480/.480, 230/230 @.050, 351hp@5000 & 400@4000 torq.

XE274H-1800-6000, .490/.490, 230/236 @ .050, 358hp@5500 & 405@ 4000 torq

XE268H-1600-5000, .477/.480, 224/230 @ .050, 354hp@5000 & 411@ 3500 torq

With the IVC closing on all of these cams the DCR is 7.6-8.4 which is good for pump gas. These numbers are based on a dual plane and 750 cfm carb. Pocket porting the heads gains around 40HP. Single plane intake and large tube headers can gain 10-15hp each.
Who's gonna be the first to say "But we don't race dyno sim programs!". But good job putting this together. Regardless of the actual numbers, what it shows best is the relationship between the different durations.

And judging by what I see, the XE268H ain't that bad, either. Especially w/the mild gears and stall. Comp's dyno sheet has it down for 342 HP @ 5000 RPM and 413 ft/lbs @ 3800 RPM using Dart S/R's and a 3310 Holley. Probably long tube headers too. Manifold Vacuum is 15.5" Hg @ 800 RPM & 17" Hg @ 1000 RPM w/ no load.

BTW, Comp also has a dyno sheet on the XE274H, it shows 369 HP @ 5900 RPM and 410 ft/lbs @ 3900 RPM using same parts as above. Manifold Vacuum: 11" Hg @ 800 RPM & 14" Hg @ 1000 RPM w/ no load. Get this one ground on a 108 LSA...

The rest of their cams w/dyno sheets are here.

68NovaSS I'm with Jester and 454, running an older Herbert 292H in the bucket, 427 BB tunnel ram, 3k stall. Lumpy, yes, but well mannered when tuned right. Being light (1800 #'s) gears aren't an issue and it pulls through 7k, not something I do often...

292H comp cam with vortec heads

I checked a few out a few cams out on CamQuest6, comp cams simualator. First the 292H-2500-6500, .501/.501, 244/244 @ .050, 351hp@5500 & 377@4000 torq.
