With the TA49 the torque converter’s actual stall was 3400. While this took place 6/7/03, it still is my all time best ET. This was a sweet combo. Later in the summer, I added Global West subframe connectors, Spohn adjustable torque arm and LCA’s, and had ET’s in the 11.90’s, but never in the 11.70’s. The 11.79 was a testament to a good day and great track conditions.
