I think those sandersons will be holding it back on the topend. Have you/he done anything to the S10 rear?

I agree the headers will hurt top end a bit but its a 99% street car. Still should make good power. The rear end is all stock I believe but car is on slippery 235 bfg ta's right now so will never hook. Once the drag radials go on then will look into some upgrades.

Yeah aluminum heads and cam has a decent amount of overlap. If needed will pull a touch of timing out.
