    1/4 mile car... hmm... gotta be a blown big-block /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif I think a stroked 454 would be a good start.

    wouldn't a small block get better revs in the 1/4?

    Back in the dinosaur days of high school, I had a 1974 mustangII(my first car). Rebuilt the motor(German bosch V6[stock])bigger cam, 12:1 compression flat top pistons, 4-71 blower and running dual 850's(thats about all I remember of it) except the fact that I beat most 454's /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    high compression destroked small block...destroked means faster R's and you can build some nasty power with a quick wrappin small block..

    No replacement for displace. But with a budget in mind, if its like mine, I would SBC. Good compression, but nothing too crazy. A destroked 400 or, if you can find a good 327, a 302. Big bump stick, and a set of good flowing heads. I would personally go iron to save some cash for elsewhere. Like World Products heads if you went after market or a good set of Double (Camel) Hump heads. Long tube headers, Single plane intake, and a 750cfm carb or better. Oh, if I had the money!!!
