My '70 Dart weighed about 3,000 pounds and made 300hp. It would haul the quarter in 14.20 or just under. 3,000 by 300 hp is 10 pounds per hp. What does a 720 weigh? Must be close to that amount so you are going to need 300 hp, more probably.


You could reduce the truck weight if not street driven. Maybe a tube frame and fiberglass shell of a body like a funny car. If you could get the truck weight down to 1,500 pounds and that Z24 up to 150 hp you would have 10 pounds per hp and should hit the 14s.


150 hp Z24.... I don't know about that.


There are lots of guys on Guam that run insane times. I sometimes thing they are 1/8 mile runs they are so fast. This isn't one of them:

The 280Z tranny will bolt up to the NAPS block but will be tilted toward the left with the shifter in the driver's hip.


KA24E pistons will raise the compression to about 9.9 in a Z24.


A Z22 head will fit the Z24 but has smaller ports.


Z20/22/24 rockers and cams are the same and will swap.


4:56 rear end sounds like a Ford. Nissan had a 4.623 in both H-190 and H-233.


NAPS Z engines aren't high revving as they don't breath well and need a lot of mods.
