We've had guys here go to a Euro front end and guys remove a Euro front end for non Euro. Someone will chime in who is familiar with the change.

All I can offer is racing experience and rules knowledge. I never progressed beyond Small and big block N/A race engine building. Ran 8.80's N/A with my last race car.

No cage? Really? If you don't decide to put a cage in, then you need to stiffen the frame an incredible amount.

You're $20K + in parts and should be able to put down 1200whp pretty easily. With no frame support you'll twist that thing in half with a decent tire. The cage will cost 1/2 the price of the heads and half the price of the Dominator and stiffen the chassis enough to make the frame feel like a solid frame.
