yea it honestly just got to fast for the 5 speed, and really dont want to start going thru clutches and breaking trannys..

BTW i got everything for $1650.00!! the converter alone is $1000 bucks from PTC:nice:

You will enjoy the auto with the trans brake. A buddy of mine use to have a big block nova with a glide w/ a trans brake. He had 325/50/15 mickey thompson drag radials out back and we would take it out for some spirited driving against others. Needless to say, it was a blast on the brake.
