An 8sec 72 Monte might require a set of JATO bottles on strapped on the roof. That's a lot of iron to get moving. Bitchin' body style though.

If your talking 1/4 mile with a SBC you will need to spend about $15,000 on a new block, crank, rods, pistons, heads etc... and another $2500 on a killer nitrous system and controller.

1/8th shouldnt be a problem with your current engine

Btw theres a good bit of difference in a 9 and 7.50 1/8th mile pass, at 3200lbs a 7.50 takes 400hp, a 9.00 takes 233hp

Why do we not run the current setup and see how that does before trying to set up a new combo?

HOW MUCH DO YOU WANT OR HAVE TO SPEND.
