Just wondering what you guys running 8's in street/strip cars are running for combos and horsepower ranges. Looking for stock suspension 3000+lb cars that don't have 100K into there builds. Lets see some pics too. :smt077

This is the car in my sig.

Not quite 8's yet, but we are hoping to run that number this month. Car is 4,000 lbs with driver. Right at 1,000 RWHP on E85 on the [email protected] pass. That was with a 1.68 60' on 19" Drag Radials. Going to put some 15's on it and put it in the 8's as it sits. Then we have a new engine going in with a stronger block and some bigger turbos. These turbos are 60's. Hoping to go 160+ with these before the larger turbos go on.

Could only imagine if the car as 3,400 lbs or so.

Mines not done yet, I think it will be a high 8 sec street car with the stock short block with more cam. I've got around $40,000 in mine so far and need about another $4000 to finish.

Mine doesn't see a whole lot of street time at this point, but I'm hoping to change that by getting rid of the rear mount radiator and going to split radiators in my lower valance to make it more driveable. Stock block 388 w/ half fill, dart pro1 215's, ultradyne custom solid roller camshaft, unported super victor intake, and a c&s 900 ethanol blowthru. [email protected] with a 1.46 60 foot on 28x10.5's @ 3200 lbs.
