Any reason for that high of a stall? A hydraulic roller probably won't do you much good there...

its able to carrie that with the trans brake its a fti converter with out the transbrake is 3000 or so with the foot brake but car is pretty light so it kinda depends on track cond, if i change to a soild ill have to have ped machined for adjustable rockers meaning pulling heads ect money is kinda funny now but well you know the deal, gotta do what needs done,so i am asking the big guys to put on there thinking caps, any thoughts?

...you need to run a solid cam or switch to a tighter converter.

it pulls like gang busters till about 55 then not so much could be havent figured out were to have timing seems to like less timming than norm 34ish total and around 21 to start havent locked out dist yet but did shorten timming curve with lighter weights but rear end is out right now so havent been drivin in 10 days every moter likes diff stuff dont really know why it dont keep pulling all the way but the car is the dyno so i am just looking for as much as i can get and always want more than i can afford

My gut tells me that cam should pull higher than that. Do you know your spring pressures?

....most cam manufacturers forget that 4V heads have big fat heavy valves. Springs lose pressure over time and install heights can vary.
