Those 3.73:1 gears might be counterproductive then...

Figuring the .67 4th, 3.73rear and throwing in a set of 245/50-16, 5000rpm would be 152mph, 6000 would be 183mph. But that would be a zero converter slip. So I think Balt would need to get cracking with the aero mods to ever run out of gear
If it's going to be driven though, try to build it for being driven

I have been up to 140 in this car the way it is right now on a trip out to Barstow once. So I don't think 183 would be that far of a stretch with shorter gearing :P.

Anyway, that's why I'm building it the way I am. It's the reason I'm going 3.73 instead of 3.55 and 331 Stroker instead of 347/turbo. If I build all motor, I can work an maintenance it all myself. Less stuff to wear out. I don't want to have to worry in the future about a turbo going out or burning a hole in the block with nitrous (I do plan on running it eventually). I just want a DD that can haul ass, but still gets reasonable mpg around town. I know a couple guys that did almost exactly what I want to do, and they average 17-20 around town an 27-31 on the freeway at 60-65mph.

It's gonna be 2-3 years unless I can find a part time job haha. I still have almost 1,000$ to put into the insight before I start working on this car.

Says the video isn't available, but I know what that is, and that's how I used to drive around town. There is a reason my neighbors won't let their daughter near my stang, and why my neighbors down the street put up cinder block walls :P.

I have one here on ecomodder but it wasn't getting much attention so I ditched it. I'll revive it later today and updated it with all my progress +pics of the grill block.

[Edit]: I guess I didn't start a thread on the widow, I'll start one later on today.
