    HOW FAST?

    just guessing how fast would you think a motor out of a chevy 2 weighing 3100lbs running 6.60 would run in a vega wagon weighing 2500lbs,so i guess i'm asking how much more would the motor get by droping 600lbs,in the 1/8 mile

    my wagon runs now 6.90 (2500lbs),his chevy2 runs 660 (3100)my motor is a 355 double hump heads steel crank roller rockers,,his motor is a 358 aluminum heads aluminum rods light weight crank,,,thanks steve

    p.s my guess would be the wagon would run around 6.30's

    I would say in the neighborhood of 6.15 or so maybe a touch quicker...

    I'm thinking 6.10 to 6.20 range if setup properly.

    well my friend bought the motor for his vega,his car weighs about 2100lbs and the motor slowed his car down 1/10,but his stall is not bigger enough and i don't think his gear is enough,,he had a 355 w/cast crank doublehumps heads and 13-1 domes
