Talking Gears and Converter

Just got my car back from IPS Motorsports after having 373 gears and a 2800 stall put in. It has made a night and day difference to how the car performed. It finally feels like im using all the power the car came with. Going to get it to the track this Sunday to see what kind of time i can get. Wish me luck I finally have that permagrin feeling!

make sure your gears are broken in before you go to the track.

With a good trans tune that takes out torque management you will have a car that feels like a big block.

Hmmmmn, I'd like to feel like I have a big block. Maybe I should bite the bullet and get the 3.70's. I need Ted to do the posi mod next anyway. If I combo the 2 maybe I can get a little discount.

Install the sub frame bushes and I bet you will get better times.

yes they were the only two things that changed. previous best was 13.3 at 106 and change. that was the best i got last year at this time. The DA is real comparable so thats what i compare it too. My previous best this year was 13.64 at 104 with a DA about 400 higher.

Well im not exactly sure how you gained 2mph without better weather or more power but a .7 reduction in ET is awesome progress. You should be thrilled by those results. I remember getting down right gitty like a school girl when I dropped my 4th gen ET times .5 with a converter so you must be really stoked. Good job.

A very efficient converter means less drive train loss and could account for the extra MPH.
