Update on the converter issue. Talked with the company today and they found some fins broken in the converter explains why it has been getting worse. Man im glad I wasn't going crazy now maybe I can get back to some 5.90s in the 1/8 and and maybe get a 9.20 or 9.30 1/4 out of it hopefully it will straighten out my 60ft times also. It is one its way back and should be here in a few days. Also figured out the missing issue at the topend I have and adjustable rotor and it came loose so it was out of phase again and jumping spark.

Got the converter back in the car today it is definatley better it actually feels alot tighter when you flash it around 4500. With stage limiter un plugged it went to 5600 on the brake. I should be able to get out to the track next weekend. I have to go to Alabama this weekend and help a friend move his Mom over here.

Went to the track this weekend and the car loved the restalled/fixed converter. DA was 3240ft launched at 4400 of the transbrake and shifted at 7k went 5.98@114.74 with our best 60ft yet 1.301, It stood up on me a little bit startled me at first but I rode it out. The car was running great and I am ready for this weekend for the 6.0 race. I am going to change the oil this week, rotate the tires, check valve lash, get a fresh set of plugs also kicking around putting a boss 429 scoop on a spare cowl hood I have and trying it out.
