I cant wait till I do the gears,160,Drag Radials. I might by a Yank 9.5" 3500 stall from a friend hes going 4000 Stall. But his 2nd gear in his car is slipping so would the converter still be fine.

Also, do you have sub frame connectors? If not then get some weld in types that go all the way back to the control arm bolt. I assume you want to be able to have the doors close and the windows to seal tight. Don't do it and you'll twist the car like a pretzel.

Both sumer duck and colonial beach drag way has closed for 2009.
I had a new driver side cat put on the car the SES light came on and it was a bad/clogged Cat. I had 2 new knock sensors put in also My SLP Y/SLP Loudmouth 1 and I took out my Spare Tire and Jack since last time I raced.
I had fun this summer running my car. Now I have all winter to do what I want to the car. 373s,DR's,160,Sub Frame Connectors,Strut tower brace.

keep us all up to date man, I think its great to see a car go from stock e/t's to built e/t's little by little.

Sure will keep you up dated. I ordered Weld in Sub frame connectors and Strut Tower Brace Thursday night. My next mod will be 373s,DR's,160,LT's/ORY pipe.Tune. Should I get it tuned for the 160 and 373 gears. Because I was gonna wait to get it tuned till I do LT's/ORY. But If I gotta get it tuned I will..
I will be going to the track in February But Iam gonna install my sub frame connectors/Strut tower brace before I go backSince I ran it I took out my spare tire and jack.I might take my Front sway bar off also. Iam gonna do skinny/wide wheels and tires also..

All I would do for right now is have the speedo calibrated and tune it when you do a bigger mod.

I didn't think you would see much (if any) gain from the minor changes you've made. Your best before that was 8.70 at 83.xx compared to your most recent pass of 8.60's at 83.xx
Get a converter in that thing, along with a tune and watch the ET's drop like a rock.
Right now you are playing with little things that won't garner much.

I'd do a converter before you do gears as that'll drop your ET significantly more. Do you think you'll get a cam down the road? If so I wouldn't get any lower than 3800 to 4000 stall.

8.60's-8.70's at 83-84 mph is running 13.30's to 13.40's at 104-105 mph quarter mile. That's about on par with most stock LS1's.
I've only gained about a tenth and 1 mph with long tube headers and off road Y-pipe on a stock LS1. Where you might see the most pickup would be with the tune in your next round of mods.
Getting rid of the torque management on the autos does wonders for these things. Along with a more aggressive timing and fuel curve you should see a nice pickup. The auto's benefit the most from a tune.

The difference between the tracks are Sumer duck is 300ft above sea level and Colonial beach is 149ft above sea level.. Ever time I run at both Iam always faster at Colonial beach. Iam running 8.5@85 at Colonial beach with 1.9 60 ft and Iam running 8.6s@83mph with 2.0 60 ft at Sumer duck..
Iam getting a complete free with gears. I just gotta wait till the guy pulls it out. Thats why Iam doing gears. Iam doing LT's/ORY. Then I will be doing a converter. Yes Iam gonna do a Camshaft but thats down the road.When I do LTs/ORY/Gears Iam gonna tune the car..

You are only talking 150 feet difference. Not enough to even bother with a tune change. The car won't know the difference. It's when you get into differences of 1000 ft. or more where it may affect the car.
Now there could be a difference in weather at either track affecting the DA readings. Changes could be drastic. Or maybe one track is prepped better than others, comparing 60 foot times would be an indicator.
If it were me I would tune the car now before the header change and see what ya get. I found my biggest gains on mine with a simple tune.
.3 tenths and 2 mph with nothing but a tune on my bone stock (at the time) 02 SS vert. And I was still learning my way around HPtuner at the time, only made some simple changes.
I did everything "one at a time" to get a real world comparison of what things were worth. It was a long process that is still on going, but the results were interesting.
If you throw on 4 different mods at once, you won't really know which one did anything if at all.
