Opinions on what to do next?

I have a few options for the next stage of my car. Currently I have the TVS 2300, LT's w/full exhaust, a CAI and a tune. Yesterday it ran a best of 10.99 @ 124.8. Speaking with Jannetty we had come up with a few options. Here they are:

1. Go with a 4:10 gear and try to improve out of the hole and deeper into 4th gear. Any thoughts on what that will run cost wise?

2. Add a converter and try and launch quicker.

3. Add a boost a pump and drop the pulley size down to a 3.2 or 3.0. I already have the 3.0 set-up. Currently I have the 3.4 and its just above 10 psi. But I'm worried about the motor with all that boost.

Any help is def appreciated!

Thats what uncle Ted suggested. He seems to think that the car has a little more in her. I just didn't know what would yield the best results. I really don't what to add any boost unless I have to.

Thanks

I think you should donate the TVS2300 to me and start over!

I would do the converter. My LS1 car picked up 3 tenths with just a converter swap.

If you are not having any traction issues then 4.10's or a TC will definitely help otherwise I would not do any of those.

I would go with what Mindz suggested a cam. It will make more power yet not create or exasperate any traction problems. Plus it will probably lower your boost so you can pulley down afterword to get back to you current boost level.
