I had a similar set-up that we ran in a 688 AMX about 15 years ago. The only differences were 660's on t/ram, 266/276 @ 050 cam, and home-ported DOVE's. Stock truck rods, flattops, C-4 trans w 4800 stall.

It ran 10:60's @ 128, but I had too much gear (4:56) and would trap out around 6900RPM.

So, IMO you should be able to run mid 10's easy with that set-up.
