250+ to the wheels is very impressive for a basically stock motor. Should be well over 300 at the crank. HP/ET/weight calculator says low 11's are possible. Soon time for a hair dryer.......
The "fleet"-
77 Vega Estate wagon- project(someday)will have TPI305/T-5, S-10 spindles/axles
72 Vega HB Drag Car -383/'Glide/9"(9.45@146.19)(6.01@117.28 1/8th)
76 Vega GT- 400/4spd/9" retired from active duty(rusty)
03 Silverado 2WD ex.cab (work truck/parts hauler)
04 Silverado 2WD ex.cab (retired)

Note- the very act of listing all of these has made me realize I have some kind of problem.....

I am thinking i could get a little more out of it in the ET department. it really needs a different converter if i keep it in this trim. If i add the hair dryer the converter may be about right. I figure at least 400HP on the stock engine with the turbo setup i built for it. have yet to decide if i will put it on but i have built a header and have the turbo, WG etc.

It is tempting but will it ever be consistent ?
