Stock 5.0's will be no problem.
Mid 13's is my estimate.
81 Grand Prix, 355, 700r4, 8.5" 4.10
64 Oldsmobile Jetstar, all original
Mine did 13.9 @ 96 mph with th350 and 3.73's with 27 inch tall street tire, was hard to hookup though. With a 4.11 gear and your 700r4 and slicks id say mid 13' and maybe even high 12' but with tho low gears maybe low 14's
Estimates here are close.. .You should have no problem running low 13's to high 12's (I'd guess closer to high 12's) 107mph my guess. (I look at MPH more than ET)
Had the same setup back in the day.. Stay with the 3:42's... Don't need much gear with that weight.. and if your going to spray it later it'll help to have a mid gear.
What kinda horsepower numbers do you think my combo can pull?
If you had a similar setup, What was yours pushing?
I have almost the exact setup as this build... Theyused the same cam
and heads as I did on a basic build....... Except mine is bored 30.
Vortec 350 Chevy High Performance
I feel like I should be getting more. I mean is this a quick combo.
After all this work I dont know why I couldnt bust on most
daily driven stangs, new and old, Assuming they have the normal
mods to their daily driver. And all these spiked hair kids in
their cold air intake hondas...
And z28 camaros....
Am I missing something here..............
