I had a 1970 Duster , 391 rear, 727 torque flight, an 340 formula s. and I also owned a i973 Trans am , 355 rear, 4 speed, and 455 super duty. there was no comparison, I could be so far ahead of the TA at the end of the strip it wasn't even comparable. Both were completely stock.

I do not agree,the Duster with a 4 speed and low numerical gearing could be a lot different to these figures !

These are as-built figures. Not a matter of opinion
