Thanks for the help I didn't think there was but thought I would ask anyway. My next question then do you think it hurts the tranny taking off in 2nd gear

You change the transmission oil by removing the transmission oil pan (this can be quite messy). Replace the filter at the same time.

You could also change out the rear end gearing to a higher gear ratio. 4.10-3.55 is an example.
