My brother in law has one of those and I ran him down in my Olds Alero with a 2.4. My car would be lucky to run 17s

You could pull a plug wire and still blow his doors off.

Quite a bit. It's had 3 different setups in the 13 years I've had it. Currently it's got a mild 355 pushing maybe 400HP, and runs mid 12s around 108.

between 180 and 220... really hard to say... so many factors can play into guessing horsepower from ET and MPH.

Originally an LG4 (carbed 305). I briefly had a 92 Z28 with a 350 TPI if it matters.

15.1 @ 90 is what a 1985 305 TPI ran stock. They were rated at 215hp.
