good catch, however your compression still might be a bit low.

Runs a lot better now. Just installed a new World Class T-5 and when I get some miles on it, I am heading back to the track to see what happens. Still getting used to the 2.95 1st gear vs the old 3.35. The 0.63 OD is a little better on the highway with my 3.73's than the factory 0.68 was.

I like it. The 2.95 first gear works well with my 3.73's. The trans feels more like an old close ratio toploader or Mucie M-22. If I shift from 1st to second at 4000rpm, it drops to only about 3200rpm. 3rd and 4th are just a little bit wider. The 0.63 OD vs the stock 0.68 dropped about 300rpm @ 70mph.
