Getting the basics right and incremental improvements is a tried and true formula for success and Sal has that nailed. Several have gone out there with wilder combos, bigger budgets, and not beaten that car. Total respect for Sal.
Talk about using the torque from boost instead of gearing - 1st gear gets it going then its all 1 gear (2nd) rest of the way lol. Never thought I'd see a powerglide in 1/2 mile events. That must have a super high diff ratio, or maybe that slight dip is going into an overdrive?
