Your 4.10 gear is not to much gear for a 1/4 mile car. If your 1 st gear is to short, maybe you need to look at going with a different trans. In order to get a good 60 ft time you are going to have to leave the line hard, leaving off idle will not produce a good 60 ft time. Soften up the suspension quite a bit, get some slicks and put in 10 to 14 psi. I don't think you are losing .6 to .8 on the 60 ft. maybe .3 to.5.. 9 second door cars have a 1.20 to 1.30 60 ft I think you are looking at 1.50 to 1.75 60 ft. Making big HP is useless unless you can hook it up. I would not worry about my motor and how much power it is suppose to make right now, I would work on the suspension and how to leave hard. A good 60 ft. is very important in a good 1/4 mi. ET. my opinion
