    do you think 3400 stall speed is good or to much? also with my trans having 81,000 miles on it is this going to shorten the life of it.....i know 1 day its gonna have to be changed but i would like to push that off as long as possible lol

    3400 is great for daily driving and bolt on mods.

    2 things you never mod a car for.........gas mileage and dependability. Things are going to break. Heat is a killer of trannies which a stall produces a bunch of but you can off set that with a tranny cooler. Your other mods will kill your tranny before a stall and tranny cooler will.

    I'm with Orion,,,,do the stall next. You will need a stall before even thinking of installing a camshaft. And it would help that you have an idea of what camshaft you go with so the stall can be chosen accordingly.
