I already talked to him...He was a big help
As far as the auto, the only issue that i can see is it taking a bit more power to reach my goal and may be strenth issues. That being said I am very familar with racing automatic transmissions. As a mater of fact thats all I have ever raced. I am gonna try launching a couple diffrent was to see which one works the best. Form Idle and then stalling the car against the converter.
I dont plan on tearing into the internals of the engine...unless it requires it to reach my goal. If that is the case a simple head port and valve job is all I would do
