Going to have a hard time running those numbers with 3.40 gears.

You need to run it at the track so you can get a timeslip that will tell you all the information. 60 ft. time, 1/8th mile, 1/4 mile etc. It will have information that will help you determine where you need to boost your performance. Most engines can benefit from aftermarket heads and/or aftermarket modifications to your stock heads. You'd be hard up to find a set of stock heads that cannot be improved upon.

With a fullsize long bed truck, even once you get enough power to run those numbers you are going to have some traction issues that will have to be dealt with.

I dont see 12's without a load of money into the engine, tranny, and suspension and possibly a N02 setup to help you obtain these numbers.

You're too kind siggy.

78, you've been asking the same questions for 500 posts, over and over and over again. If you're ever going to actually earn a few bucks, buy some parts and build something, let us know. Otherwise, do us all a favor.
