    well i just answered my own questions..

    i am not stock.. H/C/I full bolt ons 410s and Vig 4k stall..

    i read that some stock fbodys will do one of two things

    A. will not shift into 4th at WOT
    B. you have to barely lift off the pedal to get it to shift

    when i was stock though i buried the needle 2-3 times and my foot was mashed to the floor every single time.. i have had 3 dyno tunes since all my mods..

    i guess i will just have to check with my tuner.... cause i thought when i was doing it that it was in 3rd gear and not 4th, i even looked down to make sure that my shifter was not in the "3" position and it wasnt...... so idk..

    Without a tune it WILL NOT allow 4th gear WOT shifts because it fries parts of the torque converter. But a tune will allow it.

    Right off performabuilts site...

    well i have had multiple dyno tunes.. i know when i was stock i buried it 2-3 times.. but now cant get past 120ish???? im sure that 410 gears wouldnt limit my top speed that much...

    i think i was still in 3rd and wasnt shifting to 4th....

    the third gear with 3.23s will take you to around 140-145. i was up in the yellow when i was reading 137ish.
