Nice to hear. I always recommend a gear change as a first mod to wake things up.

A 1 number change in gears is usually a big difference in driving. My 79 had I think 2.73ís in it and I went to 3.73ís and the car went from 15.20 to 14.12 in back to back weekends at the track.

Does it shift too quick at part throttle for you? Mine did, so I ground some weight off the governor weights to raise the shift points a bit. Adjusting the vacuum modulator just wasn't quite enough.

The downside is that you can spend an entire day just sneaking up on the desired result vs a few keystrokes for a computer controlled transmission.
