You might gain a tenth or two with your new tranny.

If you want faster times get a higher stall torque converter while that tranny is out. Best bang for your buck.

Then come on out to the races in my sig.

Transmissions don't make power, engines do.

Any gain would be minimal, at best.

Had the stall cut and cleaned running a 3200 circle d .....
well I know the engine makes the power but you do need to transfer it to the wheels....
the best time at the track 11.3 my trans was slipping so Imsure I will have faster et's.....
I was just curious if there would be any other benefits other than being able to beat the snot out of it......lol
