looking for 9's on the motor will this work?

3000 lb mustang with driver, 10.5" tire car, all suspension done, c6 4500 stall, motor 466 13.5:1 Ported TFS Streets, Victor 460, 1050 Dominator, scat crank and scat H-beam rods, cam is in the area of 658/666 lift, and cant remember the dur at this min. is this enough motor to get her down into the 9's? not 100 % done with build so still have time to change a few things if i need to. didnt go with a bigger stroker motor because of the small tire on the car didnt want to over power the 10.5

I went 9.70's with a 472, ported tfs streets, decent roller, 3150#s, this was alky injected.

I run low 9.50's with same drivetrain but now stroked by a 4.3 crank, on gasoline.

Both combos above were on 13x31 tires, the stroker motor went mid 9.40's on a true 29.5x10.5 in better air.

I think you can do it, just don't think that is going to be enough camshaft...
