  • Any specs on 1/4 mile times with this engine or any idea? I have a 65 nova that we plan on racing. Thanks

    Asked by: Michael L
    There are several variables to consider, from gearing, to weight, etc. Depending on your setup the car could run mid-elevens, low thirteens, hard to say. Feel free to call and speak to one of our techs to maybe get a better idea what your setup could run.
