The car drives awesome on the street and this is a dry deck block coolant temps are fine . The car has 3.50 gear with new 30 x9 m/t drag radial slicks on it like the copo camaros are using will see how they work I'm looking for a high 9 on motor car is not light weighed it 3400 even with me out of it 3620 with me in it at race weight . I put no gear in it for the nitrous . Car feels really strong pulls to 7500 like a god damn 2 stroke lol .

535ci 10.8 compression wide port edelbrocks ,ported victor intake 1150 dominator ,5500 stall th400 griner brake 3.50 gear front belt drive ,comp cam is around 290/300 duration at 0.50 .762 lift installed @109. Will launch car between 3300 to 3500 on brake shifting at 7500. 4 wheel strange brakes . What I want to see is 9.6 to 9.9 on motor that's the goal but I have to remember I have no gear in it so we will see . If it does run to my goal , I might just throw 4:11 in it n keep it like that to get more et out of it . Most of my racing with it will be on the street out here. My 1st two races will be at the track though against my buddy's 500ci 1968 valiant I think n my buddy's 540 bbc Malibu . Should be fun . They don't think pontiacs are fast lol. Mopar runs that I know like high 10's n malibu around mid tens .

I think you'll crack high 9's with no problem. I'm at 3360 lbs 505 pretty much same deal, pump gas and I'll run 9.50's-60's all day long. Pump gas.
