    Funny you should mention that. It's been a vague idea of mine for several years now.

    A can of worms opened, c would be my choice from a pure et stand point from what you pointed out more lower end torque makes lower sixtys which turn into lower ets, which also snaps axles ....its get worse from there as ets drop mph gets higher the rules get stiffer. at some point the car needs a nine inch and a cage, speed costs money in more than one way.

    Can I send you a door panel (or duct tape) so you don't have to look for that window switch ?

    Well guys, I got the meat and potatoes. .20 over teksid, manley flattops and eagle h-beam rods. The block will need to be disassembled to do some tweaks for my power goals. Points of interest are the oil pump, wristpins, timing dowel pins, and checking the ring gap for big boost. The cast crank will also need to go and then it will need a re-balance. My end goal is 800-900whp and deep 9s. I am currently in the "discussion" stage for a new power adder and it will very likely be a large single front mount turbo setup. Stay tuned....
