Default What kind of potential

My Project 1992 Coupe has a built 347 stroker with TFS Track Heat heads and intake, longtubes, 75mm Accufab TB, MSD ignition, FMS "F" cam, 3.73's and full suspension. What kind of times can I expect? With street tires, shorty headers and stock suspension...the car ran a [email protected] with a 2.4 60'.

I am wanting a solid 10 second N/A car. Are the 347's capable of these kind of times or should I scrap it and put a carbed 408 in it? I am still learning on these 5.0 push rod motors. Thanks in advance for your responses.

112mph... you should already be in the 12's... must have traction issue.

Yeah, I had MAJOR traction problems. I didn't get traction until the middle of 3rd gear. I now have the suspension to get the power to the ground. I am just curious if a 347 stroker will get me in the 10's.

If you look at NMRA Pure Street those guys are going 10's with 310 cu in. I would look into a custom cam for your combo. So it is doable.

Good Luck

There are alot of little factors... compression, location, tires, and 1000 more than I dont know about. A well built 347 should put you pretty close to your goal.

Sleeperstang... there are guys inthe 9's running NA 306's! I would say your 347 stroker motor could dip 10's if you tried hard enough w/ the right parts selection... Im not one to give out advice on that though.

LCDBlackDeep.... no reason for him to have to go carbed.
