    A lot of it depends on what kind of 60' times you are getting now! If you lower your 60' a lot it will significantly help your ET's! You should have no problems getting into the 13's with what you have!

    I dont see why it cant be done. you have the suspension for low 13s. i think that motor wise you could use a bit more power though. a set of used aluminums or gt40p heads with a FMS B or E cam would work nice.

    what kind of times are you running now?

    I got to the mid 8's in the 1/8 mile (same as low 13 quarters) with home welded boxed stock lowers with 1980 rubber bushings, plain rusted uppers, and some real old Lakewood bars. The drag radials will help the most. Old v8 springs, and the rear swawbar went back on. 1.9 sixty foots. It can be done cheap!
