I have seen some 355 domer motors with 882 heads that have 600+ HP. Sure a good 355 set up right turning 7500+ runs pretty good anywhere. gearing depends on tire and how many paces around mid groove of your racetrack. Is it 1320ft? tacky or slick? running high or low? what banking?

Top budget deals for us are:
Big cam: .500 lift 290 dur
Dome pistons: 12-1
10" conv. if auto.
New tires, not used
Don't get crazy on adjustments.
