What turbo are you running. I had a red stripe with a TE-44 and it was OK, but not quick. Better to go with the orange stripe or better yet a 3200 stall 9". That's what I replace the red stripe with. Really wakes it up off the line. Much easier to build boost on the line and you don't need to build as much to launch hard.
steve, yesterday the car started acting real real lazy on the 1 2 shift under heavy load its weird it shifts and then engages. and when it goes in to od the converter locks and unlocks and its been unlocking under normal driving. my 60's have been horable the car just does not want to leave. i dont have the money for a real expensive converter thats whyi was looking at the red stripe or orange stripe. and with in the next 2 weeks i should be putting on my te 44.
