    heads/cam... do a 23x/23x 114lsa cam... it will go with your 3600... but the 3600 may be rather large... and you will need a tranny cooler... and with 460+ hp it will take a lot and you will have to upgrade your tranny... thats another chunk of change right there

    well your 4500 is long gone by this point lol... but i was recently informed a tranny rebuild is around 2 grand... that sounds cheap to me... but its what i hear... i will send someone who knows more soon to this thread but that and heads... i would say patriot would do you good... im not quite sure if you understand how much 460+rwhp in a stalled auto is... thats A LOT
    you should do fine with low 400's... thats mid 7's in the 1/8 right there... or better

    exactly what i was saying though dont give up i am not the authority just expressing my opinion... talk to people with experience rather than word of forum mouth... i would say its possible... but not practicle/reliable.... could break at any moment

    with m/t dr's i would not give your rear long... my friend put slicks on his auto... launched at about 2800... snapped the rear... slicks yes but those dr's would do about the same... the rearends can only hold up to so much... everyonce in awhile you get a lucky one out of the bunch... autos rears can handle it a lot more but with that kinda power it will still go out shortly... i would say for your goals play safe if its a dd and do full out tranny and rear

    Interested in a P1-SC1 Procharger Kit? You should easily get the hp you want.

    a cam with anything smaller than 114 will rip your stock tranny to shreds... i dont think those two cams come in anything but 112...

    let's cut to the chase here i would say a 230/234 with 58x/58x lift and 114 lsa... custom grind should do you good with patriot heads, that will save you cash, get you around 400 to the wheels, get a stall and tranny cooler, better rear end, and dr's and you should be just over 4500 spent... and you will have a good solid setup i hope... get better opinions obviously but thats what i want to say you should be plenty happy with
