    3500 is perfect for a mildly modded LS1. TCI makes good stalls as well. I have ran a 3800 TCI for 4 years now with no issues.

    I had a TCI 3500 for 3 years. I then sent it to TCI and had them make it a 4000 stall. I have been running that the last 2 years. Once you get use to the 3500 you will think it should have come from GM with it.

    Vig and Yank products are more efficient than TCI from what I observed.

    I believe Fuddle is another popular converter for LS1's,,,,several people run them on here,,,and I have been thinking of trying fuddle myself.

    I'm not a fan of TCI,,,,not that their converters are bad,,,,it's just that everyone I have had off the shelf wound up being to tight. I had other issues with their transmissions I won't get into here.

    Best thing to do is have a converter built to the specs needed for the application. Off the shelf converters rarely ever perform as you want them to.
    I use Coan in my other cars, and love them. Taylored to the combination. But for my LS1 I am going to experiment with another brand,,,and leaning towards Fuddle...

    Not sure what you mean. Driving around town,,,,you will be "in" the converter alot,,,where rpms stay up a little higher depending on what converter you go with, stator, etc.... Some drive tighter than other yet will still flash high,,,,just depends on how it's built,,,,talking to a converter manufacture is the best thing.

    Once above 40 mph or so the converter will lock up (or where ever you have your computer tuned to lock the converter) and from there it's like a stocker.

    That would mean the converter does not have lock up ability. All factory converters nowadays lockup after a certain speed/gear is obtained to eliminate slipping, for gas mileage purposes.
