Nort:

Note the "Export Only" comment. Find out if this applies to the trailer and car.

As with any auction it is caveat emptor-buyer beware.

Due diligence is needed.

What does EXPORT ONLY mean?

The designation of EXPORT ONLY indicates that the specified merchandise cannot be registered, used, or sold again in the U.S. as a result of it infringing upon some federal regulation (ex. quotas, trademarks or safety regulations). Anyone who purchases EXPORT ONLY property must remove it from the U.S. within a specified period of time. Please refer to the U.S. Customs website for detailed export information.

Sure, why not ? Have you seen some of the Outlaw street or Super Stock NHRA classes ?
A friends SS/GT 454 makes around 700 with a single Q-jet. A NHRA prostock motor makes 1300 with two.
The torque seems a like it should be higher on that motor though.
