well if your WS6 does have 4:10's and a T56 you should be able to absolutely boil the tires in 1st-2nd, lay stripe in 3rd and bark the tires in 4th

....so if you can't something is killing power to allow this or your clutch is toast.

even stock motor and gears..you should be able to lite up the tires in 1st no problem

Nope. Something's wrong with the car if you roll into it and stomp and not be able to roast 1-2.

Is there a big gearing difference between a LS1 t-56 and the LT1? With a 4.1:1 rear I get about 1750 in 6th @ 60 with a 25" dia tire.

Edit: What tires are you using?

Nope, as long as its not a 93 model. 94-02 should have the same gear ratios.

Are you running a 20" tire?? That's crazy that you are turning those RPMs, do you have a '93 model 6 speed? I know the overdrive ratio on them is different than the later years.

No way that can be right.
Mine does 72MPH in 6th at 2KRPM and thats in line with the calculators. You might really have 4.56 gears but there is no way you have 4.10s with those numbers above.
