Re: what to start with
Not sure about classes but
You will need
Billet rods at the 6to700 range ,Push rods,hypermax springs,
Headstuds, girdlel, coated pistons wouldnlt hurt.
Go with the Gt 42, the 45 is not well behaved on the street.. either giant hybirds
Or bcodes, despite what some folks say they still lay down great numbers, and are fine as a dd.
You'll be in about 3500 for the heads, to be machined polished etc esp w the hypermax kit
couple of grand for rods,
more for the injs. 3k+
Some sort of big oil 1500+ie stealth termy overdrive etc...
4k for a bts tranny,
then headers 1k.
A good exhaust and lotts of custom toonz.
Afe2 intake a lil water inj prob some nos to hit 700+.
Then lil things like a fluiddamper 300+
reg return, , fuel pump and filter system figure about 1k+ on that as well.
Some sort of traction bars like caltracs will help too.
Now that is for a solid build. But your prob in the 20k+ range.
Di,beans,wop,and swamps can give you a solid build with better numbers but that is one range. That is how I would build out, prob w a diff turbo.
But - hpe Hope it helps some.
Now 500 and nos will run a bit less.
