1972 Pontiac Ventura 1/4 mile in car drag race

1972 Pontiac Ventura II Goes 14.00@97mph. It's bested 13.9 before but I didnt get that run on video. Stock RECON Rebuilt 350 Pontiac Block & Heads form 2001. Heads are casted 6X. Mods are: Pete Jackson Gears, Edelbrock Intake, 600 CFM Holley Double Pumper (Mechanical secondaries), Holley Electric Fuel Pump, Hooker Headers, Magnaflow True-X Stainless Steel Dual Exhaust, 4.10 Gears with Posi, TH2004R with shift kit, Crane Cam 216/216 .454/.454 110LSA, Drag Radials and a slight Dyno tune. Full Weight. I'm shifting manually on the Column to prevent short shifting. I shift from 1st to 2nd @ 5000rpm & finish the 1/4 mile run in 3rd @ 5500 rpm instead of popping in 4th gear. I tried shifting all gears at 5500 rpms, but it makes no difference for the ET or MPH. Putting in 4th slows it down by .15 I'm going to install 3.91's to see if it betters the ET. 4.10's may have been an overkill.
