    i'd go no less then 3200 stall for a lt1.

    my dyno sheet says that my torque peak hits at 3500, so I would buy a a 3600 stall and enjoy the hell outta my big monster lt1 torque band.


    as far as the intake, you should keep the plastic undertray under the filter if you drive it in the rain, that should be enough protection.


    btw, I would for sure go with a vigilante converter. your best deal is right here

    and for the CAI.. they make water covers that go over the air filter that are water-proof. just slides right ontop of the filter and you set

    I have a Volant brand CAI and a 3000 RPM Streetfighter stall from TCI.
    The above stall is very tight and is close to stock and shaved .5 tenths of my track times.
