Swap on a 29" inch tire, trade the 4:10 for a 3:73 and add a NOS 150 hit and I can see 9-teens and 9.20's happening!!

Nice run,not sure if you mentioned it before but what brand headers are you using and are you using a Engine plate or Motor Mounts? Smile

using solid motor mounts , with a engine limiter to frame
using hooker fox swap super comps that are dented

set up is pretty simple but seems to be all working

So I take it the Hookers don't fit the greatest?I have MAC Headers on my car now but they're  over 20 years old I used them on my 88 T-Bird 460 swap back in 1997!! Smile They're now on my 89 Mustang but MAC no longer makes them!! Smile

the hookers work but with the jw bell on the glide its tight and needs to be massaged a bit

i think the hookers were designed for using a c6 in mind

I have a C-4 in my car so maybe they might not fit to bad!! Smile And I only live 30 minutes from Summit Racing so I guess if I didn't like how they fit I could just take them back! Smile

In the last video that you posted, it sounded like the engine leveled out and did not continue to increase it's pull the last few hundred feet of the run.

That is usually the way to the quickest times, simply not the highest MPH.

I agree 100% it pulls hard and hits a point that it flattens out
from 1/2 track on its not hard puling feeling vs the front 1/2

Possibly low on timing. If you’re using a distributor for timing they will climb the cam gear at higher rpm and can retard the timing quite a bit. I actually measured 4-6 deg swing in mine before I went to crank trigger. Just something to think about.

Makes 649hp
Weighs 2900 with me

I mean 472 with a solid lifter cam I think it's doing all that's being asked and I assume would flatten out and not pull anymore at some point
Gone 9.77 and prob has a 9.70 or maybe a 9.60 but I'm not sure how much is left

Timing is at 32 or 33 I'd have to double check

I'm having alot of fun so far really been appreciate advice and help I have gotten on here
