Examine very closely the "gains" that people report when going to a taller gear. Try to get some actual numbers out of them other than it just "feels" better.
You don't need a gear change, especially with that glide. All the gear does is dictate what RPM you cross the line at. The converter is a much bigger player in your combo. If you aren't winding the engine out at the line like you'd like, or you don't want to shift before the 1/8th, then change the gear and the converter.
I have yet to see actual numbers from someone bettering their quarter mile time by putting in a taller gear. Especially if the car was running well before. Such as finishing up the quarter just over their shift point.
