The trans is th350 with a shift kit and a continental convertor with a 3000 stall , ford 9 inch rearend with 3.9s in a 3000 lb curb weight nova . Its going to see some strip time but will also be street driven . I may well change the rearend gears as I think I may run out of gear before I run out of track.

I would suggest tightening up the quench. Right know you would have .056" with a .040" head gasket. You could use clevite #5746 .026"/4.100" that would give you .042" which is in a better range. It will raise your compression some but will be more detonation friendly.
