Def go with an auto, TH400 or Powerglide. You will need a 10 point cage, and the t-tops will not be an issue once you have your cage installed, as well as the accompanying safety equipment. Use a Fabricated 9in rear end with a locker or a spool.

and get ready to spend some serious cash!

+1 as with t-tops, they wont care, but i have seen some 9 second cars with t-tops/sunroofs that pop out at high speeds because the car twisted up so bad

Call Burkhart Chassis, and order their Fab 9 or call Moser and order their M9. Then order every rear suspension component that Burkhart or UMI make, as well as subframe connectors. job done.

Not sure how familiar you are with the NHRA rules but get ready to spend quite the amount on safety equipment. Once you break 9.99 you need a lot and they will make sure you have it at the tech in. Best of luck with the build!
