IMO it's impossible to have a genuine 9-second "street" car. A 9-second pass is extremely quick, and to get there you have to make a lot of compromises. Once you've done that, you essentially have a race car - not a street car.

I suggest you go to your local drag strip and have a close look at the cars running 9's. Pay special attention to the fuel they use, the tyres they run, their suspension setup, and what's left of the interior. Here in Australia, the national drag racing authority (ANDRA) forces you to do a number of things once you exceed a 10 second pass, and I expect it's a similar situation in the US. These requirements include an approved roll cage, tailshaft loop, bellhousing shield, fire extinguishers, battery isolator, and a whole bunch of other stuff. Do you really want to deal with all this in your "street" car?
