The truck looks good with those skinnies up front. So, how did it do?

1.82 60ft for in that air is not too bad, after all it is a truck. :mrgreen:

The thing is a P/SA truck 86 smog 350 go 1.77, but my converter is flashing 4200, I think my TQ peak was 5200 RPM. So my next changes next time I get it out will be:

1. New fuel system
2. New ignition system
3. 360 inch small block
4. Loser converter

A 1979 truck with a 1974 grill? Looks good.
