We have a grid controller on our 7al2 and it has functions to pull timing over time.

Came and gone again! Halloween took it to Tucson (altitude track). Forgot to air down the slicks and slipped and slide in all 4 gears with RPM limiter set at 7200 to a 10.87. New race battery was defective also. Next pass an aborted 14 second pass. Checked my Clear View Filter (get one!) and it looked like a sandbox.
My bad on external oil line routing and using long length of hose that collapsed somewhat. Autopsy: lack of oil.
Block is at a shop for hone and final bore diameter so I can order new pistons, rings, bearings. Crank OK, one blued rod which I have already replaced. Had I not had that filter, I would have made one more pass as I had 60# oil pressure. Surely I would have broke the engine.
We are on a RUSH to get back together. Gibtech Pistons are 3 weeks (so they say).
Back to the OP....

I think the problem lies in your converter... if the car isn't spinning you should be in the 1.40 range..
I have been through this before... I chased my tail thinking it was suspension, engine problems... but when I swapped the converter the difference was night and day!

i'm considering sending this converter to ultimate after we get the new engine dynoed. were still a couple months away from that i might call ptc and see what they think.
