Mine is a 3400 with a 2.1 STR. If I snap the throttle just off idle, I'd say it's a fairly hard hitting converter. Makes it a bit tricky to launch on street tires, takes a bit of finess. Perfect for a sticky tire though.
If I remember right, the lower the STR the harder the converter hits??? It might be the other way around, I'm having a brain fart.

They can be made to work and work well without spending alot of money on them. All that aftermarket stuff adds weight anyway
I do simple things on the 4th gens like boxing in the stock lower control arms and panhard bar. I prefer to keep the stock rubber bushings in these areas for a quieter ride. From there it's as simple as changing the instant center, adjusting the pinion angle if needed, and some adjustable shocks are a nice bonus.
Ran 1.5x 60 foot times on my buddies 4th gen like this on a 175 shot.
My auto with a 3400 stall and 3.23's, no suspension tricks at all, stock stuff,,,went 1.92 on stock rubber without trying hard. A few tweaks and I think it would go a tad quicker, and sticky tires would knock it down for sure.
They work decent for what they are.
