Help with my launch

I recently added a turbo, SHR tranny and a Pro Torque custom converter 3200 stall.

When my jeep was pretty much stock, I'd brake rev to around 2000rpms and release the brake/floor the throttle at the third yellow light, and ran the quarter mile between 12.8 and 13.3 depending on the weather.

Now that I'm pushing almost 520awhp, and have the custom converter, what would be the best way for me to launch???? I tried launching the same as when it was stock, and got approx. the same times as when it was stock. approx. an extra 140awhp and I'm running slower times.

Am I launching wrong?

Others way more knowledge than me but you need to LOAD that converter. Higher stall should let you spool it up more before nailing it.

Someone else mentioned getting a 2 step. How complicated is the install? Does it need to be done at the performance shop or is it something I can do on my own?

Should be able to do it yourself. I know stage6 put it on someone's car at the track in like 15min.
