Question Back to Basics: What is it going to run?

Specimen is a full weight 93 Notch with 302ci and an AOD.

It is more or less your typical budget build with:
73mm MAF
70mm TB
24lb injectors
Walboro GSS340 fuel pump (255lph)

Cobra Intake
GT40P Heads
B303 Cam
Shorty Headers / OR H / Magnaflows

10" 3,000 RPM lock-up stall converter
Silverfox SPT-1
3.73 gears

Suspension is stock.
Rear Tires are 255/50 DRs on Pony wheels.

The car belongs to a friend of mine and we are trying to get it sorted out. Some of the basics might change but, what is listed is what it currently consists of. Ultimately the car will likely see a power adder but for today we just want it running right.

I have never played with an AOD car before and don't really know what to expect out of it. Does this thing have a 12 in it? I'm looking for a frame of reference to ultimately gauge it's health.

What says everyone?

Mid to low 13's is what I would guess. Just based on what you said you were running.

Thanks. With those answers, I feel like there is some hope.

let me ask this way...
At this level, should I expect the same track performance out of this that I would out of a stick car with exactly the same mods? Or is the auto still a handicap even with the VB and Stall?

AOD is geared slightly different than a T5 which will hurt you a little. Should still run good though.
