Wanna explain this one? Actually,I call shenanigans on the whole post.
The Gremmy, 401 AMC, .030 over, Crower Custom 294/580 roller cam, 12.5:1 CR, forged bottom end with Stage 2 ported Dogleg heads, 2.13I, 1.65E, Thorley TriY's, close ratio super T-10, DN O/D and 4:20's.
The Spirit, a 258, Forged steel crank, forged pistons, Clifford 270* cam, 4.0 EFI head, T-04 turbo with 4" straight pipes, 727 Auto and 3.55's.
The First Stang, 83 Cali SSP Notch, 302/T5, 3.27's, rebuilt by an idiot who thought HV oil pumps were neccesary. I was straight line road racing an LS1, was two car lengths ahead of him in 4th at 6800 RPM when the shaft snapped.
Poor little 5.0's didn't stand a chance against either AMC, neither did most Chevies or Mopars.
