Looking to buy a C- headed big block to run 5.90's 1/8 mile

I am looking for a c- headed big block to run 5.90's or alittle faster in the 1/8 mile in a 2950 lb mustang thats well set up with cal tracs, monoleaf springs, 10 point cage 28 x 10.5 "s" slicks ect.
If you have something in the texas area please call 979-251-8992 and leave message or e-mail me at [email protected]
I have dual rons toilets that I would like to put on a tunnnelram and run alcohol on the motor and C-4 trans. prefer something running in good shape and not needing rebuild right away.
I have score to settle with a couple of so called freinds with "chevy" motors a 540 and 572 motor both running 5.90's on 10 inch tires.
any help would be appreciated.
thanks
Mike S

I would think that any motor with C-heads would destroy 5.90s easy

What engine are you using now? I agree that any respectable BBF with C heads would be overkill for 5.90's. We use a 9.8 to 1 compression 514 with alum. CJ's to go 5.80's at 2700 lbs. I think you could do this cheaper and embarrass the Bowtie guys even more. Nothing gets them pissier than to have their GMPP 572 dusted off by a hotrod Lincoln motor with a cheap stroker kit.

Just a thought, but if you haven't tried that combo yet, you might be surprised. We've got a steel Falcon down here that runs 5.50's with a 401" alum Windsor & spray. It's on 10.5's and weighs over 3000 lbs.
This is only my guess, but your car may run high 5's with a glide/brake, 5500 converter and short gears. Clevelands like to spin, and I've seen lots of them run 5's. when allowed to rev. If I had a "572 Whicheverway" that lost to that SBF, I'd have to:

1. Shoot my engine builder
2. Switch brands
or 3. Choose a different hobby

P.S. Can you shave a little weight? That's usually gets e.t. gains much cheaper than more "go fast parts".

thanks.

Ive got the C-4 wich im gonna stay with for now.
The converter is a 4800 stall but with the injection I think it will flash 5000-5200. with the weight? lexan front windshield and back glass and fiberglass trunklid is what would be left. Ive gutted the doors and the $ per puond of weight ,to me is not worth it.
Ive found a motorsport headed big block but after comparing the cost with what Ive already spent I think Im just gonna hold out till the small block is ready. Maybe it will be enough to handle the job.
