Default What can I expect of this combo?

Just had the motor built and got it installed right as the roads were salted so haven't had a chance to drive it at all. Plan down the road is for a small procharger, so compression and cam are low and small.

385
Cometic MLS head gaskets
1.52 Comp roller rockers
Patriot Performance 2.02/1.60/64cc Aluminum Heads
Demon 750 CFM
Edelbrock Victor Jr
Comp cam 510 lift hydraulic roller
Moroso 7 qt pan with windage tray
Speed Pro forged pistons..9.0 CR
Eagle I beam rods
Eagle forged stroker crank
Griffin Radiator
ARP head studs and ARP bolts used throughout
Petronix digital ignition and distributor

coan racing TH400
rear coilovers with ladderbars
275 Nitto Drag Radials
unsure of stall
3.42 rear gear 10 bolt posi in this....



Full weight street car, drive it as much as possible. I'm thinking high 12's....maybe. I know it's not going to be a brute, but I'm 25 on a low budget. What do you think??

If the converter stalls high enough(3500+) and it hooks, better keep an eye on that 10 bolt.

It had 4.10's when I bought it but I couldn't drive in on the highway like that to get it to the track, takes me about an hour on 65 mph roads so that was the soul reason for the gear change.

The 10 bolt worries me as well, it has aftermarket shafts but still, the 8.5" isn't the strongest. Whoever had the car before me raced it quite often so I assume the stall is fairly high.
