    62 fairlane injected supercharger et HP estimate ???

    looking for a ''real life'' estimate. i am not good at estimating things like this plus its winter for me and i have a while to find out at the drag strip.. i am trying to see if i should cage a car or not while its off season. just a street car . 62 ford fairlane frame ties all the goodstuff, full interior [ 3300 lbs i guess]. has a 5.0 injected [ fresh stock bore i guess about the 86 mustang era set up] has a 303 cam or something like that he said. very ruff idle good response. has V1 vortech supercharger with all the accesories to make it correct. all sensors idle air and others are in place even the headers are plumed for 02 sensors. 381 posi with bfg 235/60/15 . disc brakes [ dont matter i know]. car has been on 2 pro tours over 1500 miles . car has 20,000 miles on rebuild supercahrger is a year or so old. i am trying to estimate et mph and horse power for the sake of should i put a 4 point cage in car or not? nice solid driver has best of parts bought for ignition fuel and drivability. looking for REAL suggestions but not dream stuff. my guess is 12.20 12.00 et's? and 360 horsepower rear wheels?

    If you're gonna race it drag, auto cross, track day, 4point MINIMUM. IMHO cuz I'm a hard core RACER and schitt happens for the silliest reasons. While yer at it, 5 point harness as well.
