Installed my Goerend converter!!

I got my Goerend converter yesterday! It look me 1.5hrs to install last night. First impressions love it. It feels like its actually putting power to the ground, feels just like a manual trans. It pulls so hard from a dead stop. I raced a Dmax last night he was running a PPE I waxed him. It was leaving a light I gave it alittle throttle to see it he was going to race and half way through the intersection he nailed and so did I and instead of just the converter just slipping and RPMing out she grabbed really hard and broke the tires loose at about 20mph. I had him by 3 trucks up to 80mph. You can actually watch the tach climb when you drive and see it drop just like a hand shaker! This is the best mod I've done so far! I love that I have solid pull in the first 4 gears now. I was always afraid to race in the lower gears because I would just walk right through the converter. Not any more!
