i would say your pretty much set with just the 310 and intake, as far a cheap theres nothing cheap about making anything fast, but you could buy a interccoler pipe, maybe some spray

Practice your 4 wheel drive launch.

He's gonna spin the tires, while you scratch all 4 then take off like a Son-Of-A-Gun!

Throw a little Salt on the Wound after you beat him. Say something about Having the A/C on, your GPS not keeping up, or you were on the Phone when you were Launching and didn't see him get sideways.

Just a little dig while he's mad. You should have a One Up on him for a while.

Whow Whow Whow...You say he has a 66 GTO with a 427???
That is a Cheby engine. You mean he cannot even keep a Poncho engine in there? I wouldnt even try to argue with him because he is obviously not in his right mind.
That should have a 389 pontiac engine in there.

Spank him any way you can to make his castrated Pontiac look bad. Then tell everyone that its actually a chevy.

Traction bars, Toyo Proxes, and nitrous. You could use a small shot of nitrous, like a .067 jet or something and be safe for a few passes. Launch the truck at 15-18 psi in 4wd high and hang on. He won't know what hit him when you bust his a$$ off the line.

Is it a stroker pontiac (ie 400 punched out to 427) or is it a BBC 427? Either way it all depends on what he has done to the engine.
