I am interested too, I just ran into a couple guys running a 440 CI SBC and a 437 CI SBC claiming they run 9.20's and 9.40's both in mustangs. They both run E85. Both guys said the compression was over 13 to 1, so I am looking at putting my 12.5 to one pistons in my car and converting. I know I need a new fuel pump and change the metering blocks on my carb.

Anyone have any information, that would be great.
I can't wait for race season, this has got to be the year.

I've run on a 13.2 to 1 427 SBC and a 14.5 to 1 447 SB2 head engine with no issues. 5.04 in the 1/8 with the 447, 5.28 with the 427. I did run one night with a 1050 on my 461 SB2 at 15.5 to 1, ran a string of 4.91's. When I get it back together, broke lifter, I'll try a 1250 on it, should be good for some 4.80's. Dragster weighs 1875 with the 447, 1850 with the 427.
