Yes, the current converter is stock. We are looking at different deals on converters, reading about them, and it is hard to decipher if one brand is better than another. There is another drag event at the same airstrip tomorrow, so I'm going to ask around about this subject.

Got an unexpected call from someone I don't know as a result of my conversation with my engine builder. This fellow has a rebuilt 200 4r that was supposed to have been modified to live behind a 350. If it is built right, it might be the thing this car needs to be as good as it can get with this head/cam combo. It even has a converter that is in the 2100-2200 stall range. I asked the guy to see if he could get more info about the build relating to the hard parts that may have been changed. It was built, then never installed for whatever reason. For an $800 asking price it might be a good deal.


For now, we'll see if the tires make as much difference as it feels like, along with maybe seeing if removing the front bumper changes things very much.

Give ACC Performance Products a call or fill out the converter selection PDF and e-mail it to them. They helped me out when I was digging through converter choices.

No drag event today due to rain. This area has been in drought for the last 6 months, and today is the day it decides to rain. The farmers are happy at least.

Just a pic showing the difference in size between the tires.
