For better takeoff in town you might want a 2500 stall converter also. Is you cars engine stock? Headers,camshaft,or 4 barrel carb? Getting better exhaust helped my car out. With the stock motor and 3.73 gears the stock 69 350 and manifolds it ran 15.10 at the track. The very next day I put on headers to try it again, Wow it ran a 14.70 then. I then had the motor done with bigger cam, 9.7 compression,Z-28 intake and dyno max mufflers. Now it ran a best of 13.09, Then I desided I wanted a 12 sec slip. I put in the 4.11 gears, and it slowed to a 13.57, YES it slowed the car, the engine builder said I now need a cam change for the higher rpm the 4.11 gears make. Oh well sounds like this winters project. Gene S.
