This combo of double hump 1.94 valve heads and cam with 8.5 to 1 comp in my buddy's camaro netted 8.13's in the 1/8th mile .That was with 3000 stall converter and 4.56 gear upping the compression to 12.5 to 1 netted 7.70's so I would suspect you would be right in the middle at about 8.0 flat 1/8tyh mile.That is a low 12 second 1/4 not bad for a driver.
I would like to get up above 400 hp. it must surely be possible with a few nice heads and good cam? does not feel like I want to keep my old heads .. then I might port them? yes Converter can I change the future. going to start with heads, intake, carburetor and a good cam for the combo. have you reached the great tips on what I'm looking for? To get as much as possible with what I was thinking to change ..
