Just got back from the track a few hours ago and wanted to post the results.

The car went a best of 12.644 @ 107.08 with a 60' of 1.818. I don't know the DA but the air was real good, nice and cold out. I wasn't going to go because of working on the car late the night before and the possiblity of rain but went anyway and the track was empty. Just pull up to the line and race. Very Happy Gotta love that.

With the converter the car is much stronger. I'm really impressed with the car so far. I haven't touched the motor and it's running mid 12's. The mods on the car are FTRA, Air lid, 3.42 gears (stock was 2.73), Nitto DR's, and now a 3000 TCI street fighter converter. Everything else is stock, this is with completely stock exhaust, manifolds, cats, and non SS cat back. The cam is so mild it idles at 600 rpm and quieter than the wifes minivan. If you can't tell, I'm going for the stealth approach. My previous best was a 13.1x with near similar weather conditions. So the new converter dropped the times a solid half a second, thumbsup for the converter.

It's results like this that make me want to rip the 350 out of my 79 and build a stroker LS1 for it. Hmmm Devil

That's moving. I love the stealth approach and am going to work harder toward that in the future. Empty track - my kind of night too. Clay

Thanks clay.

I forgot to mention Paul_P met me at the strip. He ran a new best, 10.972 @ 121.03, all motor.

Needless to say we were both excited with the results.

It is amazing what a loose converter will do for a stock (more or less) motor. People don't realize factory converters are for gas mileage and nothing more. Great time Smoke. Hot Rod ought to spend more time with real mods than the B.S. so called bolt ons that don't work to their potential without a converter. Adam

Another thing worth mentioning was the fact that including smoke and myself, there were only 6 cars running on the track! It was like a rental day for us pretty much.

Very nice.

I've never owned a performance automatic car. How does the higher stall in the torque converter affect daily driving? I'm actually switching to an auto for my car and it has been recommended to me to run a 3500rpm stall converter (turbo should be fully spooled @ 3500 rpm).
