Motor build? I would look at least at going 88mm and shoot for 1000rwhp. 200 mph standing mile and aerodynamics of a 60's car make for a tough recipe

Work on the aero, it means more than weight and will help you run safely. I went 204 with under 700 flywheel with a car that was under .2 drag. If the car is a fastback you would want a wing with spill plates that is very long off the back and smooth the gas tank area within reason. The front should be on the ground with all air flow cut off except small intake feed.

Yeah Aerodynamics plays a much larger role.
