not ever pulled an auto, but a bud of mine did , he stuck it in low, hold brake, make a little boost, let off brake, tach out, shift to second, when you start getting to the end and start bogging down, downshift back to first. .

I'm sure some guys with auto's will tell you exactly how to do it.

4 low always, turn the OD off and put it in DRIVE. dont build boost, building boost breaks parts, instead pay attention to rpms, bring rpms up to about 2500 and let off the brakes, with a stock turbo you will have no problem getting the sled moving and building boost when you take off.

With 4.10s I would try 2nd high, or being your first pull probably 3rd low to get use to it.

Ran 5th low last night and hit 276. Box bottomed out and my boost dropped quick. I have 3.73s, so im a little lower than you second gen guys. She was like a rocket for a while in that gear though, took off at 45psi and she held at 55 till the box hit. I think 4th low might be the trick for a few extra in the end.

Umm, if you have it @ 2500 rpms with the brakes on you ARE building boost!
