Default Slow MCSS

I bracket race a 86 MCSS. I run 1/8 mile in ohio. It has a flat top 355, 202 , 58 cc, 170 port heads, roller rockers, victor jr , 750 dp, hei with msd 6al, hooker comp headers, electric fan and water pump , th350 with manual valve body, 3000 stall, trick springs , comp 3 way shocks, 4-10 gears, 28-10.5 slicks, skinnys on front, shift at 5500, 60 foot 2.0, timing at 38 degrees, car is stripped I guess weight about 3000 lbs. My problem is the best I have ran is 8.85, I think it should be better. Can y'all help me???

when you say you have 58cc heads are you saying that you are running heads from a 305eng? how about the specs on the cam? what rpm are you leaving at?

I would advise you to get a higher stall converter, a set of heads and some gears. Put the thing on a diet, fiberglass anything you can.

The cam is a summit 234/244 - 488/510 lift , the heads are new not 305s, I beleive they are pro comps. I leave at 2000 and shift into 3 gear at the line. I am planning on a fuel cell and electrick fuel pump over the winter and installing 2 batteries in the trunk. I am on a tight budget as I figure a lot of us are can y'all guide me toward a better set of heads ? Sorry I have not got back sooner but I have been away. Take Care gunslnger
