A 4:30 would suit you much better, even a 4:56 if 1/8 mile is all you run. But 800 hp should run alot faster than a 5.82 even if you had a 3:90 gear. I suspect you have a converter going away or already gone. What is your 60ft times?

I would take my chips out and stall your trans on the transbrake to see what your stalling. Your car and anything close to 800 hp should be about 1.17 to 1.20 60ft. Find out what your converter is stalling before you change anything up.

Its alittle big but it won't make more than 5or6 hundredth diff. I really think your converter is bad. Timing way off, or jetted way off. I holding to the converter unless you find something else. What's your MPH?

Check the converter and then we can go to stuff like jet extensions, timing, jetting, spark plug, wires, etc. What was your MPH. If its over 145, you have a converter problem.
