That 9" converter seems to tight.. A 8" that flashes close to 5500 might wake that thing up..

Is it actually spinning the tires? Likely not hitting the tires hard enough. Shock settings?

what was motor and trans in before..? sold a roller to a guy that complained the car wouldn't work. his old Anglia weighed maybe 2000 pounds but in my old 3300 pound wagon, the convertor was obviously junk....and wouldn't 60' for crap...from 1.40's to high 60's in the wag.
