Hutch , I see a lot of talk on here of c-4s only lasting 60-100 pass's at this power level. I am close to what he makes and only have a couple pass's on my c-4 with the new engine. So is this true ? I'm not looking forward to paying so often to have it
Freshened. If this is the case I'm going to have to learn to do it myself or make the switch to the 400 T. Nice rds I see your power level is up some. Is there a reason you are considering taking out the manual??

That's what I'm talking about! When mine does that I'll be a little more excited.

Powerglide and a high stall 8 inch converter. If you can get it to stall in the high 6000's and gear the car up pretty good you'll have the results that you'r looking for. Think about SB2 motors that spin 8k-10 at 800-900 HP. They all run well when the converters figured out.

Spare yourself the C4 Drama that you know is inevitable. A turbo 400 is a decent choice but in my experience at the mid 8 second power level it becomes a real chore to handle
