1993 Fox Notch Back Build. What Class and other questions.
OK guys.. After seeing a large transmission leak in my 5000 pound pig I've decided to pull the motor and transmission in my truck for the last time. I have another much milder version already built and ready to go in it. That will become my pulling truck to get me to the track and back.
I have bone stock 1993 Fox notch back 4 banger in my barn just waiting for the build. My motor puts out about 800hp and about 1000 on the bottle. What class (if any) should I try to build this thing for? Should I tub it or just try to stuff the biggest wheels under the fender wells that will fit? I'm going to strip out the interior this weekend and then take the rolling chassis over to my local speed shop and let them cage this one (I think this is the one that could possibly kill me so I'll let the pro's cage this one). Full 12 point cage with motor plates. The speed shop guy says if I don't use a front K-Member and I use the motor plates he will be able to lower my motor in there so I won't need a huge 4 inch cowl hood (I hate the way they look). Just getting going on this build for the winter's project. As I've said before I don't know anybody that does this stuff and I'm trying to figure it out on my own. I'm hoping to be in the 5 second range in the 1/8. Any thoughts and experience as to what I should do would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks in advance!
