    Well I did get a tune and up the line pressure so it looks like I will benifit from swapping the gears to 3.42's, which a wanted to do but EPP won't install them anymore do to customers having noise problems.

The transmission is actually shifting firmer with the smaller TC, it has less mass to slow down on the shift. The smaller and lighter weight TC is much easier on the drivetrain in terms of stress.

    This is exactly what it seems like. With my gears and going to a smaller converter the shifts are less pronounced and smooth but the rpm's stay in the power band. I really need those 3.42's

    So I guess everything is normal, just wanted to make sure.

    Thanks for all of the help.

    Just put a "Vig" 3600 stall in my car. I also had already swapped in a 342 rear (due to other issues). At WOT, the car shifts nearly as firm as it used to, but obviously at cruise rpm's the shifts are hardly even felt.

    Might as well go to 3.73's, that's the highest most suggest going to for a daily driver/track car with an A4 anyways.

    I know that is the optimum gear to put in the rear for an auto but I don't know if I want to do it because my gas milage has already dropped from 23-24 mpg to 20-21 mpg with just the stall. I want to try and keep it as high as possible while making the car a little bit faster.

    So you DO have headers, well, with what you have so far then, I wouldn't sweat the difference between 3.42's and and 3.73's

    Your gonna love the difference with either though.

    BREAK IN PERIOD…
    Yank converters have a special clutch lining material that requires a special break in procedure.
    This procedure consists of:
    Driving the converter at normal speeds with NO WOT starts or brake stalling the converter for approx, 150 miles.
    Stall checking or Brake stalling will severely damage the clutch lining if converter is not broke in properly. This will void any warranty.

    What is stall checking?

    And is brake stalling, standing on the brake and lighting them up?

    brake stalling is when your on the brake and give it gas to the rpm 's are reached to your convertor, its for launching

    it all depends on which brand of convertor you got also, some are underated, like the vigilante... there 3400 is like a 3600 soo its all depends but still its all pretty close.
