Small update: I've made two track outings with three passes each since the last time I posted. These passes were in attempts to get my NHRA license.
The first outing and three passes was my first time out with the shorter final drive in attempts to help with my bogging issue outnof the hole. My tuner helped me identify that my base fuel pressure is dropping 15-18 psi when I launch and I'm baffled as to why. We've tried some things to identify the problem which I won't go into detail about right now. While I was attempting to diagnose the fuel pressure issue I decided to boost peak test the car and found that I had a couple of t-bolt clamps that were left loose after I did the tranny job. Stupid mistake but I fixed it and moved on... I also installed my new drag radiator because I am having some overheating issues on return road and wanted to see if the drag radiator I had sitting on the shelf could possibly help this issue in any way.
Went to the track for another outing. Made my first pass and the car launched well finally! It was great to feel it actually spin the tires out of the hole for once and not bog! However I couldn't get the car into 4th gear that pass. At first I thought I just missed a gear but then I had the same result the second and third pass. It became painfully obvious that I had hurt the dogs in fourth gear. So the tranny gets to come out again! Yippee!
