Thanks Guys, the MPH seems high to me as well. The car has run 7.45 at 92.86 and then we put in a turbo action valve body and the trans I guess could not carry the load. The car started to slow down with every pass in et but the mph stayed close.

Pulled the drain plug on the trans pan and it's not so good. Things went wrong inside. I pulled the trans out of my car and we are going to run it in hers to see what the car will do. So today was a fun packed day pulling two trans and installing one back into hers.

Mine is a forward manual valve body with a 3000 stall. Not the best for a street driven car LOL. Now I do drive mine on the street from time to time but hers has way more street time then mine.

We will have a new one for hers built this week and change it back out Friday or Saturday.

I was looking at the MPH and thought it should be in the 7.20's to 7 teens.

Well I guess we will known soon right..:D

Mine does 7.30 at 92-95Mph with a 1.5 to 1.6 60ft. With the glide it went slower ET and faster Mph. Of course people here will tell you that it isn't possible to have a car that does that.

Looks like you have a car that works very well, but doesn't make a ton of power; whereas some of the other posters have more power in cars that don't work as well. How much does it weigh?

You must be referencing my car. The car you're referring to is working VERY WELL in my opinion.

My old car did 7.41 at 94.59. 1.61 on the 60', but can't remember the 330'. From what I understand, though, is that stick cars tend to be a little higher in the mph than auto cars.

I'd have to get back to you on the weight, I can't remember exactly what it was last time it was weighed. I believe it was in the 3200-3400 range though.

It's a 74 Trans Am with a 455. My dad and brother both race Pontiacs and this car is put together using their spare parts. Just put the spare aluminum heads on it yesterday in preparation for the Pontiac race at Norwalk next month. Looking for a 6.80 pass.

Best run in my wagon (really good air) was 1.613 60 foot, 7.441 1/8 mile @ 90.93 mph.

Seems to me that your 95mph 1/8 says you got a better ET in there if you can find it.
