what would it take in terms of heads intake carb? can it be done N\A without spending 40k
They were doing it with a sheetmetal intake.Huge heads, huge cam, huge intake, lots of compression, big dominator carb, 2-2.25" headers to 4" or bigger collector, titanium valvetrain with shaft rockers, no accessories!
Something like Victor heads with some really good port work, 15:1 comp, supervictor fully ported to heads with a dominator, and a cam and valve train up to spinning 9000 rpm! The old Street Bandit class was doing it running in the mid to high 8s before it was shut down.
