if you have stock suspension , your alignment shop can only align it to 86 gt specs .if they have a modern machine , they will have all the specs already .If they ask you for specs , take it some where else .the non stock engine does not dictate different alignment specs .

Alignment is more related to what type of racing you will be doing. A street alignment will use street specifications

its mainly a street car ill probly takeit down the track a couple times just to see what it runs.
but as for alignment in the rear what should the camber an toe be set at to ensure it pull straight when i really get on it

if you want straight line specs, run a bit positive static camber in the rear. Toe should still be slightly neg, I run stock toe rear, and almost 0-0 front toe.
