I took my car to Heartland Park Topeka on a really hot day. I didn't do very good. I almost beat a 70 or 71 Cutlass but my car hesitated and he beat me by just a little bit. I did beat an El Camino though. I can't remember what my time was though. I will be going back soon since I just put on some new headers.

Never run it but thats not to say i won't. Still i know its fast enough or will be when i put it together.As long as it blows the doors of bavarian barn stormers and rice rockets at the lights that good enough for me. The 175hp nos kit will help if i need it He He !!
