15.68 @ 85 MPH I know that's not blistering speed, but I think it's respectable for a V6 truck. Don't laugh, it's all the thrill that I can afford.

nice pro streeter. My girlfriend is going to be building a pro street S10 sometime soon. Well her dad is gonna build it she will pay and drive it. We just put a 305 in my buddy's 90 Chevy Astro minivan. Replaced the 4.3 V6 with a 305. The 4.3 blew a head gasket had to remove the engine to replace it anyawy.

Hey the time you V6 runs is the same as my old 1986 Pontiac Grand Prix 2+2. The fastest it went was 15.67 @ 88 mph. Thats with open headers! Through the mufflers it only went 16.00 flat. The first picture is from my local dragstrip, Lebonan Valley Dragway. The other smoking picture is from Englishtown, New Jersey, when I went to Pontiac Day there back in the 80's./snofan/../images/users/maydaze/Mvc-003f.jpg

Nice looking Grand Prix, Maydaze. You don't see much of that body style Grand Prix's and older. What's the Grand Prix have in it? I knew mid 15's was relatively respectable, I was running quicker than a 1968 Nova one time I was at the strip.

The old dog has your basic 305 4 barrel small block. Not even a HO, just the base 305. When it was 3 monthes old, I took it to the strip. 17.00 @ 83 mph! What a dog. I put Hooker headers, 1.6:1 aluminum roller rockers, 3.90 gears, accel ignition, hypertech chip, cooler thermostat...you name it. It went 15.67 @ 88. I took everything off except the headers and ignition system and it still went 15.70 @ 87! Go figure. They only made 1228 of these cars in 1986 only. They are all the same color and fully optioned. I bought her new and sadly sold her a few years ago with only 36,000 miles. God I miss that car. But family duty calls and we have to make some sacrifices. Wait till the wife sees my next car..... Ha Ha Ha!!
