Might look into some gears tho still as there are 3.27 or even 3.55 that wouls still be great and a good set of tires. And a HP guess probably around 363 to the wheels.

Really I thought I would be at least 400 to the wheels since trickflow claims I belive like 360 on a bonestocl 302 shortblock and trachheat tope end I have a 351 with pistons lightened rods knife edged crnk full exhaust X pipe and aero chambers now but I guess my quest for more power is still on I will concentrate on suspension for now I think my setup is good for some decent times if I get my suspension/tires right any suggestions?
