Hey guys. I am fairly new to racing and mopars in general and was looking to perhaps get pointed in the right direction or a little confirmation on the basic plan. I have been doing my learning on my 69 falcon so everything has been sbf but i have decided to sell that and my dad and i are going together to put his 70 cuda back on the road and the plan is for a 10.xx second car that will see a bit of street fun. The street fun of course not being regular cross country trips but a bit of weekend cruising and noise around town so would need to run on the 93/94 pump gas i have availavlble in my area.
The car itself is a 70 cuda, will mostly be stripped down interior with a 6 point cage, 8 3/4 rear 4.30 gear, ss spring moved in. 90/10 drag shock up front need something better on rear. Fiberglass hood. Will be looking to lighten up more aa best we can. Looking into perhaps more fiberglass as time goes on. 727 that will be getting a reverse manual vb, had a 4000 stall but was sold over the years so can buy whatever converter is best for combo as i need to buy one anyway.
Recently purchased a 67 440 shortblock that i am picking up this weekend. It is 60 over with trw forged flat tops, ly rods, forged 440 crank. Said it sits right at 10-1 with an 84cc head.
goal is to get into the 10s somewhere. Deeper the better but would be happy regardless of high, mid, or low.
have an old set of 906 heads but would prefer going the lighter route.
Been kicking around the idea of eddy rpms and victor intake and getting some porting done as a guy down the street from me does good work. Was thinking about maybe getting prosystems to work me out a carb and have been looking at the lunati voodoo solid ft cams. Is this a step in the right direction?? Nothing set in stone other than keeping the stock stroke for now and being pump gas friendly.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
