outofstep, any information on trying to preload a manual transmisson car? Ive heard of using a line lock, ebrake, etc. I would like to know what is proven to work. I know preloading, will make my tranny, diff, etc last longer, less of a shock. Thanks for the info.

Thanks for the great info. I did the usual to go faster, 3" exhaust, increase boost, ect. My 90 auto was running low 14's. The first thing I did was the front anti sway bar, then a 3200rpm torque converter, 13.9, after the torque converter was an aluminum drive shaft. Now the car is 13.6, on a mostly stock motor (150k miles) And still so many more things to do.
