yeah that would be pretty cool, i would only hope to go faster than my dads expectation of a mid 17 sec run. only thing ive raced before was my dads 87 camaro and it went a 10.98 at 119 with a 305 so this might feel slow.

Yeah the jeep will feel a little slow compared to the camaro. If you get a good launch I don't see why you would get low 17s high 16s.

I had a Camaro with the 305 and I couldn't get better than a 14 second pass with the stock engine. The best I could do was a 12 second pass with a non legal 2bb race carb. And I did the rear swap to a 4.11 rear. And had the trans bumped to corvette package.
