Track will tell the true numbers, but it made 500+ whp, 600+ ft-lbs thru an unlocked TH400 and Ford 9” rear end IN SECOND GEAR 👀

Also made 18 dyno pulls and it didn't blink an eye :D
Fixed that for you....

True true. Not sure how that helps or hurts lol

I don't get it...? Why would it be in 2nd gear?
And if it was I believe that scews the numbers obtained
I believe Tony is right, I remember something about this in my hours of mindless youtubing.

Understood. However being in 2nd at 1.48 to 1, isn't the rwhp/rwtq going to be off? By a lot? Being that gears are torque multipliers and all.
😆
In theory it would look like this "diesel Volkswagen" dyno result... ;) ;) ;)

With massive torque that was higher than HP, like skewed by like 100hp.... Allegedly....

If you can get it to hook, then you’ll know what it’s doing imo.

Well cooked tires, half *ss prepped track, 16 psi in the Mickeys and 8 degrees on the hit is what it took for me. At 10 degrees I couldn’t get traction.
Refresh my memory, 275/60R15’s on the rear?

Tony is correct. 2nd gear pulls will joy give the same result as 1:1 in 3rd gear.

Good luck Chris - hope to see some results!!!!!!
