The cam sounds small to me, but I haven't messed with hydraulics in a while and never really got big with them. The unported Victor Jr isn't helping the cause, I'd suggest a supervic intake for sure. 4800 on the converter should be OK, just gotta get the motor making the power. Whats the timing set at and is it locked out?
I get away with 4.10 gears in the 1/4 by spinning the motor. Remember, mines a high compression solid roller setup and makes power beyond 7000 rpms. I shift at 7400 rpms and go through the traps at 7400 at 136 mph. I can't spray it in the 1/4 mile as I don't want to push 8k rpms.
