How big is your motor?
How much nitrous?
How fast have you gone?
How much does the car weigh?
What suspension are you on?

I'm working on a new 572 motor and put ladder bars under the Nova to see if I can get it down in the low 5.'s on 1 kit. My head porter seem to think we can get it done. We'll see soon
Keep the info coming. I'd like to hear more.

What heads are you using? I'm building a 598 just trying to decide on heads. I'm leaning towards the Foxlake A460s I think C heads will keep me out of a lot of classes.

Motorsport A460's on mine, not the best but they have been worked on pretty heavily...the best "shelf" A460 is from Total Engine Airflow...but at 598 you may want to go C headed anyhow since the x275 c.i. limit is 588.

Man, not trying to tell you what to do, but if it were me I'd leave the stock suspension on there. Personally with a radial, I think it works better than a ladder bar. Like I said though....just my .02.

I plan on running the 275's and putting 10.5's on it at a later date.

I don't think so. Not on all combo's.

Why is everyone running only one stage? Can you not run 3 or 4 hits because that is the way go. I bet a serious 582 big block with 3 kits will go high 4.70s

maybe because x275 is limited to one stage on big block cars....... and that is what most of the 275 cars run..
