We have similar goals... I have 3 questions, auto or manual trans, what's the budget like, and what are the tech rules at your track for 'verts (I believe NHRA requires a *5* point bar for 'verts 13.99 and quicker)?
My thoughts on my own car, with similar goals in mind (and my funding is not unlimited):
GT40 Heads, Cobra Intake, all are ported and gasket matched
E cam (or similiar)
Taking weight off the nose (my next step, and probably biggest hitter, is a tubular K member since I need to rebuild all the steering and suspension anyhow)
Upgraded rear suspension (Strange 10 ways, battle boxes, debating between UPR and Maximum Motorsports links)
Sticky tires, but not DOT slicks
Here's where we differ.. I have no problem dumping a 100 shot into it, especially with the deep gears and stick (I can spray after the 60' mark). On the spray, that combo should be good for somewhere around 350rwhp, which I'm actually hoping with good driving, chassis tuning, and luck will dip into the high 11s... On the street, low 13s is a freaking fun car to drive around, so getting there with N2O doesn't offend me all that much.
Just my thoughts.
