if I took my car to a drag strip and gave it full throttle, I think I would be the last car of the night due to the time it would take to clean up the trail of fluids and parts from the strip...I don't know exactly what would break, I just know it would break....a lot

Congratulations! Always god to get some recognition
Although no drag strip close to my home I would be happy to just make it to the end of the line without requiring a tow truck!
Have you done any racing with slicks?

No slicks. That was also on the original factory springs from 1973. I have since replaced with 4 1/2 leaf reverse eye springs and added a set of Cal-Tracs. Working on the Sub Frame Connectors next week. Decided to take a break from the car and finish up the Heat and AC in the shop as I was tired of sweating out a gallon or so every time I was out there.

73 Grandé H Code. Headman long tube headers, T-5 Transmission, 3.70 Traclok, Lowered 1" all around, Aussie 2v heads w/ 2.19 intake, 1.71 exhaust, screw in studs, full roller cam 608/612 lift 280/281 duration LSA 112, Quick Fuel 750 CFM double pumper, AirGap intake.

are you running a stock 351 block? or bored/stroked? what HP do you estimate you are making?

Original 351C block. Bored 40 over, stock pistons, crank, rods. The rest is heavily modified. I'm on the look out for a std bore 4 bolt main block to build though. I am guessing with the heads, tuning, cam, etc I am in the 400 HP range. It really screams. Cam and head details are in my signature at bottom of post.
