- 3500 stall TCS torque converter
- B&M pro-ratchet shifter
- B&M trans cooler
- Chrysler 8 3/4 housing
- 4.10 gears

OK, now that you know the car, Im looking at making some changes to the engine and would like your input.
I bought a set of ported 906 heads that have been fitted with 2.14/1.73 valves and have extensive bowl and runner work. I am thinkng of running these heads with a Comp XE294H cam, Mopar M1 Intake manifold and a Holley 950hp carb.
I want to make more power in a higher RPM, and I think this combo will do it.
I would like to keep the short block stock except for a set of ARP rod bolts and run on Chevron 94.
Give me your input with any combo using those heads and rotating assembly.
