I'm not exactly clear as to what you want opinions on, but the parts you have purchased will be great for what you want to do.

Ummm, you can buy a stock car today that will run mid 12's--that's not a "really fast street/strip" car--my junk runs mid 10's and I can drive it anywhere.

Saw one of the new challengers at the track Sunday. My wife said it ran a 12.63

To be fair, mid 12's is still a pretty fast street car, especially if it's a daily driver. It is humbling though to see what these new cars can do.

My heads are ancient 210's on a 410" pump gas piece; I never ran the bottle on this one, but my old combo that was slower ran 9's with a 200 shot.
A 434" shouldn't need any help to run 10's.

Thats awsome i think im going to wait till next year for the big engine as i have alot of stuff to do to make it legal to go that fast. But i now have the 4.11's,eaton posi,toms axles,gurdled diff cover,sub frame connectors and the cal tracs on and WOW :eek: What a difference! I just love the gears and i did 70miles of highway on them and i dident think the rpm was to bad. But i dont think ill be takeing to many road trips till i get a overdrive of somekind.
