have you taken the truck to the track? I'm curious what it would run... and with the mods the mustang had, I would have made him look like he was standin still..

a set of pistons would have been cheaper than $1700 And you'd probably be faster than that.

Gas mileage would still suck, though. But...for a race truck...who cares about that...lol

the camaro I ran got a 14.4, the mustang ran a 14.2 before the sct programmer, so maybe a 13.9-14.1..

I for got to mention I sold all the 440 stuff for $2,300 so I made $600, if I bought a set of high compression pistons for the 440 I would be out $600.

The 440 ran a 15.7 getting 9mpgs on thw way to the track. This LS1 beat the red camaro that runs 14.4....and the LS1 in my truck is still stock.
'
A good set of heads for the 440 (edelbrocks) are $1500. I can get a good set of LS6 heads for the LS1 for $450.

Going from a stock 440 to a stock LS1 drop my 1/4 times 1.4 sec and gave me 10mph in the 1/4 ,

The 440 was fun, but its not a good street motor like the LS1 is.

My camaro is a heads,cam,stall, LS motor running 10's N/A and still gets 22mpgs on the way to the track.



This is why My dodge has an LS1.

My buddy has a 440 Duster with big valved heads, high compression, gears, stall, cam, etc, runs 11.5.... and has to trailer it to the track.
