The last time I was at the drags was 43 years ago but I made a mistake of making a pass in my gt500 and sort of got hooked again. ([email protected], I screwed up and let off in the lights). In any case, I was thinking of picking up a local 94 V6 car, ripping it apart, caging it and putting a 331 in it. I'd like to keep a 4 speed in it, because I just like rowing a 4 speed, I also have an 8.8 lying around with a true trac. I'm thinking I can get the weight down to around 2200 pounds, since UPR is right next door to me I intend to use their stuff up front,and keep the 4 link, using their sway bar and all in the rear. Single 4 bbl, aluminum heads....etc. redline about 6k. I'd like to know about the final drive gearing, and also the need for mini tubs, what would fit under the rear fenders without mods. My target ai low 12, high 11s, I'm even thinking about running a hydraulic cam just because I'm kind of old and just want to have fun with this thing. I basically have a clean slate, so any input would be appreciated. The whole idea of this is a simple, fun ride, not a lifetime career.
