What do you think my top speed will be?
 
1984 Z28 350CI, TH350 TRANNY WITH b&m shift kit) 3.42 rear end, automatic, i think the cam is an RV cam im not 100% though, im just curious ill prolly never max it out just wondering

About 65 mph. Or at least that's what it would seem like if I passed ya! lol

Really, I don't know, there's only one way to find out! You'll do it, thinking about it will make you!

3.42 and no overdrive with small tires is what will slow your top speed.

I have 30" tires on my pickup with 3.42 and a TH 350/305. I can run about 110 on a cool evening so you'll be over that :p

Try 87 mph @5500 rpm. this is based on your motor having 190 hp, 240 ft lbs torq., with 215r60 15 tires, a th350 and 3.42 rear gears :cool:

How about 15.81 sec, 86.4 mph in the 1/4 :cool:

dang 15.8 thats REALLY slow lol, btw my motor is suppost to be right around 300hp, its a 350....sort of built up

ztoy 03-18-2003 04:43 PM

Changing the hp and torque (figured it to be around 360 ft lbs of torq., being it had been modified a bit), that takes you to about 14.13 et , 87.1 mph @5500rpm, and top speed of 87.1 @ 5500rpm. Looks like the th350 is holding you back abit... :cool:

Try these guys on for size. They helped me to select the proper gear set and tire combination for a top speed run.
