assuming a 20% driveline loss, about 529 horse at the crank and about 430 at the rear rollers. That also assumes a medium sized, light-beer drinking, 200lb dude behind the wheel. Get your girl to drive it, it might go faster.

Tall order for your setup man, slicks will get you closer, as will a higher stall (I'm told), but I don't see 12.0 in that motor's future, not for that car anyway... IMO (Maybe Conservative... but I'd be happy to get in the 12's in any capacity)
