4k converter will strip some HP off your dyno sheet.
Yep agreed, stalls kill the power on the dyno, but on the strip you gain ET

my car went from 279rwkw head/cam back to 255rwkw with 4000 stall, but gained .5 at the strip

really need to take it to strip again, last time i went hit 1st gear limiter couple times than got stuck on second just wouldn't change lol, thinking its due to different size wheels, did a 1.8 60 ft and was 8 something half track can't remember exactly

are you leaving it in lower D or 3 (unsure what VT has), as it will just bounce off limiter if you try and manually shift thru the gears
