Nice run and nicw car.
I have a question with the weight of the car would it be faster with a 3 speed or not? ALso what's it pulling for RPMS at the traps.

I reason I'm asking is I building a Fox body that will be very close to your setup, I'll have smaller cubes but Blue Thunder heads and Turbo400.

Thanks

I shift at 5600 and it goes through the traps at 6300. I'm not sure if it would be faster with a 3 speed. I know it would benefit from a 3.90 or 4.10 gear it leaves soft. I'm not going to change gearing because i'm building a 598 wth a460 heads for next year and that combo will like the high gear.
