A 4:56 at 7000 rpm and 27" tire would be 123.36 MPH. I think a 4:56 gear is what I'd run with your combo.

How did you come up with such a different answer? Did you figure no slippage in the converter. the moroso scale does not factor this in FYI.

He's running a 4500 stall so the slipage will be minimal. I think the growth of the tire will off set the slipage of the convertor. I'm using a dragmath program thats been very close on actual numbers for me. A 27 in tire actually has 84.82 roll out.
