T-56 question

Hey guys , so i have a sn95 with a b303 cam, edelbrock victors intake manifold , shorty mac headers, full magnaflow magnapack off road X, bbk cai, bbk 70mm tb, msd pro billet dizzy, msd 6al2 advanced discharge box.

Stock heads as far as i know.

The car has a t-56 tranny in it with a .373
In the rear.

The car seems to be slugish off the line and youre doing 100 km at 2000 rpm in 4th gear

Is it safe to go with 4:10s?

No, there is 0 connection to the computer for a transmission in a 5.0 motor. Speedo is driven by a gear that sends a signal on a wire directly to the cluster. You'll need to get a speedcal box to properly calibrate your speedometer though, there is no gear to get it right with 4.10s. Or really any correct gear for 3.55s or 3.73s either.

Also, the first person to come in and say "no you are wrong there is the white gear!" will earn a swift e-kick to the e-taint.

There's a gear set to get it right, and no not the little white gear. You need to really drop your arrogance.

The gear to set it right is to pull the tailshaft and install a 6 tooth drive gear, then you can use a 20 tooth black gear. And sorry if I came off as being arrogant, it was meant as a joke but that doesn't always translate over the internets.

Scotty you're full of helpful knowledge, that being said, in some of your posts it does come across as all knowing and infallible. Thanks for being here!

Like I said sorry if that is how it sounds. I am most certainly not all knowing and infallible. NOBODY should take anything anyone says on the internet at 100% gospel without some fact checking of their own first. The internet is a great tool for sure and there is a lot of info out there. Some of it is very good, some of it is very very bad but just about all of it is free and remember that, as with all things in life, you get what you pay for.

Forget them. You're probably one of my favorite people on this forum already and I've only been back for a week. Haha. Keep it up man!

Lol I'm not worried about it. I'm not trying to be a dick and if someone gets butthurt from something someone says on the interwebs... thick skin is pretty much required online.
