anyone running a 351

I think I might put in a 351 with a stock bottom end and World steel heads on it in my street driven 83. Anyone running a near stock 351 and what times could I expect? It will be a carbed motor. My 302 with the same heads ran [email protected] with 2.2 60 ft. time.should i just fix the 302 [new crank]or get the 351?

I just finshed a few weeks ago getting my 84 up and running. It is a notch back with a 351 windsor. The short block is stock crank and rods with some cheap($15 a piece) flat top pistons. I have windsor sr heads and about a .540 hydraulic cam in it with performer rpm intake and 650 carb. C4 trans with 2800 stall and 8.8 with 4.10 gears. I took it to the track for the first time and it ran 12.37's at 107 with 1.66 60 foot times. There might be a little bit left in it but Im not pushing it to far. Shift at 5700,5700, and go through at 5800.

Also running on 26x10.5x15 ET Streets.

I make 420rwhp na and spray it anywhere from 75hp to 325hp.Ihave hurt a couple of pistons but never the crank rods or block.I have 600+ passes on the motor and 15-17k worth of street driving.It is a 69' shortblock.My buddy has been 9.30's with his f4 block,stock crank and cheap eagle rods.He made 700 at the tire.The eagle rods started breaking as soon as he turned up the boost a little more.
