I only have 2 track days on my 408 but it seamed to work good. Big rads, oil coolers ect are standard issue. I run at Watkins Glen and with the 302/t5 combo, had thought that my 3.73 gears were holding me back (too many rpm's). With the 408 I am running a TKO 600 with the RR 5th (.83) and it allows me to run on the backstretch at about 5300 rpm in 5th. I might not have to install the 3.27's I have sitting on the shelf. Front end weight is always an issue. Drop weight where ever you can because of the extra motor weight.
