Given the power you will make, I would calculate what MPH you expect to be at at the top of the 1:1 ratio when going through the traps in the quarter mile. You probably want to set the gear ratio to match going through the traps at or just below redline.

What torque converter are you running?
Car will probably never run down the track. It’s just for stop light to stop light fun on the street and to hurt a few peoples feelings on the street.

And I'm switching up the bass portion of my trunk. Guy that re-built my box on this car and built a couple boxes for me and other friends has a connection with Taramps and Resiliant Sounds. He is sponsored by both and is working on getting me sponsored by at least one of them. I gotta show my hand at first per say, meaning I need to buy their products. However, I'm getting them at cost thru him. If things work out which they should, then I will get some of their new shit to display in my car every year. I'm going with 2-Resiliant Sounds Platinum 15's and 1-Taramps 5k Smart Bass amp. He wanted me to go with the 8k amp, but then I need to add more batteries or go Lithium and 8k is too damn much. I'll start breaking shit. These amps hit soooooo fucking hard, its a true 5k.
My guy has 2-15's (same ones) and the 8k in his box Chevy and its ridiculous.

So my JL bass portion is up for sale for $3k, will do $2500 or so for someone on TCG. Not going to bother making a thread as I dont think it will draw much interest

That is going to be a rowdy ass set up.
I have another 600/4 amp to throw in for more mids/highs as well. Those red and black wires under rear deck are 2 more Hertz ST25 tweets and 2-Hertz 6.5 component set with 2-tweets. Those were put in with the new interior. The mids/highs already scream and super clear. Will have 1600 watts going to just mids/highs
