Never seen one, got minimum weights the the car is required to hit.

^^^ Like jeffgfg said, basically removing all optional equipment leaving you with a base unit. I am not sure if your class will allow removal of the heater box and sound deadening material, but the optional equipment in 86 was; power windows, power locks, cruise control, A/C, Premium sound system (5-speakers + EQ VS 3-speakers no EQ), interior light decor group (courtesy door lights/console lights), rear window defrost. Removing any of these optional items you may have including the wiring,switches, lights, brackets. pumps etc. that they come with. The GT package did include items like tilt, full gauges, console, vanity mirrors. Ideally coming in under the minimum weight and adding it back where you want it to be. If your class does allow additional removal of non essential components, then wiper motors, sound deadening materials, and basically anything they do not mandate should either come off or be replaced with a lighter one.

As to the trans, I know a few lead sleds that have had good luck with the Jerico, but maybe some of the transmission guy will weigh in on that.

Looking at transmissions and clutch setups

A legal short block is complete, waiting on Randy for the heads.

I need to get some gears and a spool too.

No kidding, did pick up some aluminum brake drums and a few more core parts yesterday, it's slowly coming together.

Ended up buying a Richmond 5 speed off Wayne

As for the clutch it's an Ace slipper deal. It's being built as we speak should have it in a month or two.

Not sure on the rpm yet I have a few ideas but I have never played with such a shitty intake and a valve train like this. This thing is a lot different than a full boogie race engine.
