2700 lbs car with 900 should do 8.50
This "assumes" the car is set up for 900 ponies?

I guess it depends on your definition of "low maintanence", but I generally consider those goals to be mutually exclusive.

PM TopSportsman916 for a low down on his 557 w/ 429cj heads. Nothing exotic, virtually maintenance free and has put his 2600lb car into the 8.40's
