another "what will i run" thread..lol

So after i have purchased some new parts, this is my setup for this summer. I am looking for an estimate quarter mile. I know there are so many variables, so make an estimate on perfect conditions so i have something to aim for. I currently run a high 13 (13.6 @106) and thats with my old setup...differences were...


-a junk holley 600cfm
-performer air gap intake
-leaking valve seals (burned a lot of oil and gummed up my plugs)


so pretty much all top end stuff that was hurting me and i know the top end is the most important.

Heres the new setup (bold ones are the new parts)



-350 2 bolt main bored .040 (357ci)
-All ARP fasteners
-Speed Demon 650 cfm vac. secondary
-Holley Blue Fuel Pump
-Edelbrock Performer RPM Intake
-Accel High Output Distributor
-MSD 8.5 Race Tailored Plug Wires
-MSD 6AL Ignition
-Aluminum Roller Rockers (1.5 on exhaust, 1.6 on intake)
-Dart 64cc Iron Eagle Heads (200cc)
-Stainless Steel 2.05 intake and 1.60 exhaust valves
-Keith Black Flat Top Pistons
-10.5:1 Compression Ratio
-Cast Crank and Rods
-Comp 274XE Cam (.490 lift 236 duration) (.520 on intake with the 1.6 rocker)
-Hedman Headers
-2.5" Dual Exhaust with no catalytic converters and Flowmaster 40 Series mufflers.
-Richmond 3.73 Rear end ratio
-Eaton Posi Differential
-Built 200-4R Transmission
-2500 stall converter
-Griffin 4 Core Aluminum Radiator
-B&M Transmission Cooler
-B&M Ratchet Shifter
-Front and Rear Sway bars


this is all in a 1987 Monte Carlo SS

think that should do it...Thanks a lot if anybody has any input.

program

There is a program called "Quarter JR". It works very well. Its an older program so it is cheap. I used it and it came out 1 tenth off.

I doubt you will go much faster. Only significant change was carb and you took off an airgap to put on a perf/rpm.

13.6 is damn fast for that car. 200 cc runners in the heads seem a little too much for the rest of the motor.

I use a larger duration cam on my 400 sb with 170 cc runners with a Holley 750 and I run mid 12s in my Vette.

With those MPH numbers, you're leaving a bunch of ET on the table. You should have been in the 12's already.

Is the car spinning off the line?

Can you post the rest of your time slip info? 60ft, 1/8 mile, etc.

What does an 87' Monte SS weight with you in it?

i can spin through first and second if i floor it, so im pretty much limited to more of a controlled start, until i get going then floor it.

my 60' was a sad 1.9 or 2.0 (cant remember, was last summer)

the weight with me in it has got to be somewhere around 3600 lbs i believe.

traction

Install a set of SSM lift bars, a set of 50/50 rear shocks, and ditch the rear sway bar.

i have heard about the sway bar thing, but this car is my daily driver so they are nice to have. If there was a way to work around that it would be nice. If it wasnt a hassle to take em off and put em on i would. Im also afraid of getting too much traction because i get worried i will snap an axle or a ujoint or something.

oh kinda off topic here, i was thinking last night about my carburator problems, and how it runs really rich...with my 274XE cam (with the 1.6 rockers i have make it .520 lift) should i go from the stock 6.5 power valve, to a 5.5?

You can remove the FRONT sway bar and gain two things: 1) a small wt savings depending on its diameter 2) better weight transfer. Another way to gain the wt transfer advantage without the hassle of pulling the thing completely off is to just remove the left side end link on the front sway bar. This will improve your wt transfer w/o all the hassle.
