Them cam specs?

Xe268H-10 would be an intake duration (advertised) 268 duration at .050 is 224. Exhaust duration advertised is 280 and at .050 exhaust is 230. This particular cam has an an intake lift with using 1.5 at 477 and an exhaust at 280 using 1.5. Him using that bump stick with 1.6 would give him a result of a lift of 508 to 509 lift on the intake and 512 on the exhaust. I hope he has some good springs in there so they don't collapse on him. my personal thought, as well that there is no horse power for him or torque. 1.5 rockers would have given him a better result on his times. Using a 2000 to 2500 stall convertor with using 1.5 would be a good choice. With the 1.6 that engine is just starting to produce at somewhere around 2300 to 2500. He is driving a heavy truck, not a light car. He could have been producing close to 375 to 400 horse out of that engine with the 1.5 and might have beaten the Dodge Neon. Yeah, as it goes he probably needs a 3000 stalll convertor to get off the line with enough oomf, though his stock drive is going to get ripped apart.
Also where might his peak horsepower be at right now? Maybe 6000 rpm? If he is lucky. Let's see what snaps when he pushes it to 7000
