Purestock's car has taken a long time to get sorted out tho. he has a perfectly matched combo.
I have run 7.3's in a hatch at 3300lbs race weight. I had 4.10's, AFR 185's, XE282HR w/1.7's degree'd +4 degrees, Victor 5.0 with 75mm tb. 30 lb inj, 90mm LMAF, Powerpipe, L/T, with 22" of pipe with race bullets.
Suspension wise it had coil overs up front and in the rear with 90/10's and 50/50's I ran consistent 7.3's.
Coming out of the hole at 6500 I would pull 1.63 60's an run 7.3 at around 96mph
96 GT- Complete 4v swap, 4.10's
93 GT- Traded
97 F150-PI swapped.
