    A buddy of mine had them on a stock suspension 1989 350 IROC with 100hp NOS kit. Car ran 1.79s 60' all day with about 350hp and probably 500lb-ft of TQ.
    was it a diesel?

    Where did the 500 lbft of torque come from? A 100 shot can get me this?

    totally agreed, anything past 350 and forget about it.
    for a daily driver i put on BFG drag tires and they work rather well.

    1989 IROC L98 350:

    350lb-ft TQ
    250 HP

    100hp nitrous adds 150lb-ft (nitrous works wonders with the long runner TPI)
    and obviously 100hp

    Even in my 350 (400hp, 425lb-ft) with a 150hp shot it gives 175lb-ft (carb, not TPI).

    I hope everyone knows what TPI is...
