HP is greater at higher RPM's what the converter is going to do is lockup at that certain stall speed that it was made for and transfer that power at higher RPM's to the wheels.

    Heres a analogy that I really like when you go outside jogging you start to breathe in and out faster and harder. Well the same thing goes for a performance engine. The engine is breathing in and out harder and faster, at a higher rpm. If a high performance engine makes power at a higher rpm, then a higher stall speed torque converter is what you need to put more power to the ground quicker.

    Personally I liked my 4.10's in conjunction with my PI 3000 stall. Couldnt catch traction worth a d*** but enjoyed it.
    ok, that made sense. thanks!

    When I was learning about this stuff that was the only way I could describe it. Now I can go into depth on these things. Man I need another Camaro. I'm selling my converter if your interested. Do you already have gears or not yet?

    3.73 should be a good gear ratio for a stroker. Should be nice and balanced goodluck with it. 12k whew

    well 12k plus 5k spent on pulley, full exhaust, lid+filter, new springs, shocks and subframe connectors. but yeah the ls2 402 is forged, so full bolts on with it = 500rwhp.
    with that said I can throw a s/c on it or better yet a twin turbo to go 800rwhp. but I need a 12 bolt first ... ok this is off topic

    I have an A4 as well and I used to have 3.73's but when I upgraded to a 9 inch I got 4.11 gears and I love them way more than the 3.73. On the highway it is not that much diffrent than 3.73 as far as rpms goes either.

    So basically you wen through the traps in 2nd gear then?? Sounds about right for a 2.73 auto.

    4.10's should help a lot

    Hey, A4 guys, what are you guys running rpm wise at 60 mph with 3.73's? I have 3.23's now and a set of 3.42's in a box, I know that if I install those, I am at 2,000 rpm at 60.

    3:73, A4 built stage 4, 3000 stall running 2600-2700 rpm at 60. I'll double check but I am pretty sure that's where it is, also LS1Edit tuned so shift points are moved a bit.

    Woa, thats a jump from where I am at, almost another 1,000 rpms than 3.23's. I know its all about performance etc., but I plan to do a trip or two, like the camaro firebird challange etc., in New Hampshire, I dont want to fill up every two hundred miles..how much top end did you lose?

    I checked on this and it is actually 2300 at 60 mi/hr, in some setup less. I got a 402 ls2... on an ls1 I think it would be 2200-2150 at 60mi/hr with 3:73 gears.
