    converter ?

    I was doing the math and am wondering how bad you guys think my continental converter really is? My 81 Camaro is 3400 lbs with a 440 small block Chevy an a Th400 4.11 gear 28 tall tire. My best this year was a 11.33 at 117 mph with 7000 rpm at the stripe. It just seems to me that my converter is...

    Need Drag racers tuning help Please!

    As far as how the plugs look there great and it doesnt run rich or stumble. I told him tonight that maybe he just doesnt have the volicity to run that big 4150 carb.
