    Looking in to this as well. Unfortunately it seems opinions are varied, heated and sometimes nasty. A search will yield good results. Seems this is an area where money spent is a good idea IMHO. Most will say the Vigilante and Yanks are the best, but cost $$$. Many seem to like TCI, Fuddle, etc, whle others have seen many problems with the above. My thing is this is something I think I'm gonna spend the $$$ on and do it right. If you can live with something that most have liked but some hate and don't mind yanking the tranny again if you get something you don't like, that's fine. For me I think I'm gonna take the plunge and put the $$$ into a nice converter like the Vig or Yank. Conversely I'm also gonna get headers and I'm going with the EBay route or maybe the Pacesetters, since I think this is an area you don't need to spend big bux and will still be happy. Good luck and let us know which way you go.

    Your cam and stall need to be matched up so they work with one another to get you into your power band
