hedman hedders (not sure on size) with cherry bombs true duals
i have a TH350, stock stall, TCL shift kit ,with 3.08 gears in a 66 el camino that weighed 3260 b4 i took it apart, it should be around 3200 with the alum heads.

What do you all think?
any suggestions?

I was recommneded Lakewood traction bars... are these any good?

Sounds like a nice combination.
Id suggest a little more gearing in the future to get the 3200lbs of car moving better. Maybe 3.73's-4.10. Depends on how much lomg distance driving your doing.
The stock stahl will get ya by, but Id also change that.
Id guess around 400-425 horses and with the setup with those gears and that converter at a low 14 to mid 13 in the quarter. Hg
