    built a4 with which converter?

    Hey guys. I have a 98 Camaro that's has full bolt ons, full suspension and I think 3.73 gears. My Trans is taking a dump on the 2-3 shift and when cruising in 3rd feels like it it has problems deciding what gear to be in. so i'm having one built with a beast sunshell better 3/4 clutches a better band and a few other things. I'm trying to decide between the circle d 278 or a yank 3200. I'm sure everyone will vote for yank but any info on the circle d? Id be saving around 350. Plus it is my daily driver. I race about 10 times a year. And only stalled car I've driven was my 99 Camaro that had a tci 3000.
    I'm trying to do a decent budget build but don't want to regret it right away. Any ideas?

    Yank 3600, if you go smaller then a 3500 you will regret it.

    I had a tci 3000 and it was nice. I want the yank 36 but am kinda afraid it will draw to much attention to the car considering the exhaust. I'm only hoping for mid to low 12s which shouldn't be hard with my current setup and a stall

    +1 on the higher Yank. If and when you throw a cam in there you'll be glad you went with the Yank.

    I went with a 3,200 when I upgraded to a Performabuilt Level II transmission. After driving and racing the car for 2 years on it, there is no question that I should have went with a 3,600. Live and learn.

    With 3.73 gears you need the Yank 3600 stall with a good aftermarket cooler.
    My ride is a 2002 Camaro SS SLP #3296 with 30k, LTH, 3" Y, CME, Frost tune, K&N, ported TB, Blackwing lid, Bellows, MSD, Denso Iridium, and 85mm MAF, Bilsteins, Eibach springs, SLP strut brace, Adj. Panhard, TA Girdle, UMI, Pro 5.0, Nitto NT555

    Is a 3600 yank too much for daily driving?

    Like mentioned above, not at all. You can taylor the STR to make the converter feel tighter or looser while still having the same rpm stall, and rear gear as well as the weight of the car will all affect how the converter feels. For instance, a 3600 with a 2.5 STR in a car with 2.73 gears is going to drive loose, while a 3600 with a 2.1 STR and 3.73 gears will drive tighter.

    So it's a bit different depending on each combination as well as each manufacture, but I agree with cpop, 3600 really isn't all that much.
