xc in 11 sec zone?

im gonna rebuild my xc fairmont and i wanna get it to do a 1/4 mile in 11 seconds flat on street tyres and keep it driver friendly for work to on the road.

I plan on buying a 351 4ma crank and use 302 rods with flat top pistons and 4v vales in the 2v heads and a 2.5 inch dual exhust system with turbo mufflers back by a 2500 stall converter on my c4 tranny with a trick kit and a 9' lsd diff with 3:55:1 diff ratio.

i also have 15x 8 inch globe mags on it with 235/60/15 tyres

Im aim for 450hp max from my engine rebuild would this do the trick?

Is this possible to do with the car still in street trim or am i dreaming?

If u kno anything i might have missed i would like anyone help thanks.

sorry but your dreaming

$6000 is unlikely to get you 11's. At least not in street trim.

Re: xc in 11 sec zone?

Might be better off building the car up so it is capable of running 11's over a few years.

First aim for 14's, then 13's etc.... And enjoy the sport, learning what works best for you.

How often have you raced on a drag strip???
