    what will it run in your opinion

    HEY EVERYONE I HAVE NOT POSTED IN A WHILE IVE BEEN BUSY WITH LIFE.ANYWAY IVE JUST FOUND A VEHICAL FOR MY ENGINE ..

    FIRST OFF THE ENGINE IS A 400 SBC 30 OVER WITH 5.7 H BEAMS AND 10 TO 1 DISH PISTONS . IT HAS MOTOWN 220 HEADS 2055 160 WITH victor jr . 750 dp cam is a solid flat tappet with 253 262 @.050 with 547 557 lift on a 110. this engine was in a complete 77 firebird with 3200 convertor and 350 turbo with 4.10 posi .. it ran a best et of 11.78 1/4 mile

    now it is in a 91 s10 with caltracs 4500 stall powerglide now has electric waterpump/motown port matched intake/and 1.6 to bring my lift to 585/595. im also running a set of kook headers to 3.5 exhaust compared to the old 3 inch and hooker comps.still running 28 inch tire and 4.10 gears thru a nine inch.
    im just looking for some thought since it'll be a few weeks before i make it to the track.
    im hoping for 11.00-11 teens but i'll be happy either way just to back in action.
    thank you for any future advice and comments

    The S-10 should be alot lighter.I think it should run close to what you are looking for.

    EVERYTIME I INSTALL A ELECTRIC WATERPUMP I PICK UP FROM 2 TO 3 TENTHS.
    IM SURE THAT NUMBER IS ONLY BECAUSE IM ALWAYS RUNNING MID 11'S IF I WAS RUNNING 10.O'S IT WOULDN'T BE SO DRASTIC OF A CHANGE .
    THANK YOU

    i had a 1973 camaro with a gm headed 406 i could not get that sucker to break in the 11's i ran it at 12.05 best for the entire summer back in 04 then i installed a aluminum rad and a proform electric pump and first time and everytime after that it always ran 11.70-11.75.

    my buddy had a 72 camaro with a 454 running 11.68 steadily. then we installed a crs electric pump and then went a 11.28 best .

    i have a buddy with a 383 in a mustang he said he picked up 2 tenths from 11.50 to 11.30.

    keep in mind all these times are mid to high elevens but if we were running 10.80's maybe it would not make a differance . but if were running 12.90's maybe it would make even a bigger differance.

    running

    I got her fired up and ready today she sounds healthy thru those 3.5 bullets i think imgoing to add some tailpipes to restrict flow a little. i think 406 torque motors like back pressure alittle .
    you know when you install the battery in the trunk and the positive cable melts on the headers ( by accident) and you have to run clear back to the back to yank off the cable and it is smoking it will leave one hell of a burn on a fingure or two.. now i have a quick disconnect .
