It was dry today...........so I went for a little ride.
It works much better now. Pulls strong in first gear to 6000 rpm. Firm shift into 2nd gear, then pulls all the way up to redline.
Then when it shifted into 3rd gear, the gear selector was in drive and foot still on the floor, it went up to 4200 rpm and seemed to hit a soft rev limiter at about 110 mph.
Too much traffic so I couldn't get into any top speed runs.
It may still need some more time to "learn", so I'll try again this weekend.
If I let it off the floor, it has no problem accelerating to higher speeds.
All the other features seem to work just fine too. The kickdown thrust at low to mid speeds is awesome.
My guess is that it is a low 14 sec car now......and I may keep it that way.
I am like Jim, luxo cruising at high speeds being the Bonne strength.
I prefer drag racing my rear wheel drive Bird and from what I've learned on this site about the weakness of the 4T65E, may keep it that way.
The mileage seems to have improved, now that the fuel gauge is working again.....20 mpg, but it is so dependent on the warm up time that really kills the average.....and of course the lead foot.
Oh and I lost my ram air aluminum elbow somewhere along Hwy 101.....must have blew off at speed. $5 at the hardware store for another. :(
