It WAS trapping around 5900 with the 4.11s & a 28" MT DR, I did have the car weighed on a reputable scale at the local rock cuarry plant, I wasn't too surprized of its weight, Its a bare bones cutlass, not the fancy ones, I'm only 145 lbs., so i'm a light weight, It would be nice if the car was heavier, it would explain its slower times, Now i did calculate converter slippage & it was saying 12%, that seems a bit high, I'm getting somewhat at my wits ends with this combo, Its like what the heck, I know it should run better but it doesn't, It feels like it just runs out of steam in high gear, it just doesn't pull, but on other accasions it seems better, maybe its fuel, but i'm running a 110 pump with 8 lbs. pressure, the fuel line is all good, so is the tank.
