My 79 Firebird/Formula/TA with a 455 Old's. I was steering with one hand and hanging on to the phone with the other...lol The 455 is a 71 Olds 30 over performer cam and intake with headers. The engine dyno put it at 435hp 590lbs. It runs 298 gears with a stock turbo 400. It will average a 13.5 in the quarter and 19 MPG round trip, about 22 hwy. The burnout you saw left about 230 feet of posi on the road. The car was built to be a street machine not a racer. This car was a daily driver for 2 years, and remains one of the most reliable cars I have ever owned.
