    Yep, 4.10's. Gears and T-Lok is one of the best mods I did. You can really feel it in the seat of your pants.

    If you don't get a lsd(tlock)you will most definetely burn the one tire off on any kind of launch :p

    My 4.10s and T-loc were also one of the best mods I have done (well best so far, the turbo and stroker will top it though). it makes launches so much nicer, and I can chirp the tires on every shift if I want to (its an auto). My highway rpm did get higher but again it will be nearly impossible for you to top it out, especially without significant power to get you over 100 mph.

    press the gas all the way down lol. When it shifts, with a tune with modified shift points and pressures, it can shift gears faster than the wheel's grip can handle the acceleration change so the tire breaks traction and chirps.

    I get to 100 no problem, I topped out at 137. Hit the rev limiter with the overdrive on. I did this on a long stretch of Mexican highway.

    That's my Diablosport Trinity Tuner, it has a virtual drag strip. It's slow by like .2-.4 seconds though. I verified it at the drag strip. It has 0-60, 0-100, 1/4, and 1/8 mile. It also can put a gauge up for every PID that it reads from my OBDII port.

    I have BBK cold air intake, ford racing T-Lok, 4.10 gears, shaftmaster's 3.5" one piece aluminum driveshaft, PATC 3000 RPM stall torque converter, pypes x-pipe with pypes violator mufflers, and Cooper Zeon RS3-S tires. I use a 93 race tune by BAMA

    Did you notice anything from the driveshaft? And the torque converter?

    Oh yeah, they both made a huge difference. The driveshaft knocked 20 lbs off of my rotating mass and the torque converter keeps my rpms above 4500 on every shift. I can't get any traction at the drag strip now because of the torque converter.
    Here's a video of the torque converter before I had a good tune for it. You can see how bad the tires spin off the launch.

    Does it do any harm to the engine?

    No, it just doesn't lock up the trans to the motor until 3000 rpms. When I launch I can either hold the brake and rev to about 2500 rpms and let go or I can flash the converter by just flooring it. I usually flash it which means when I floor it, the car doesn't really take off until 3000 rpms. It's awesome. If I had better suspension and some sticky tires I'd be clocking low 14's in the 1/4 mile. With drag radials I know I could hit 13.9x.

    Since that video I've adjusted my shift points so that it doesn't go so deep into the red line. Now I shift at 5850, 6000, and 5850
