    I went with a 3200 and drove around for 500 miles before getting it tuned. Car did fine but i never beat on it in that 500 mile period.

    I would wait until you have the gears in there but you will most likely need a tune with that stall. Your shift points will need to be adjusted.

    You may also find a tune needed to desensitize the engine misfire tables when that converter is installed.

    I found with my 3400 the computer thought the trans was slipping and would set off the engine misfire codes, then put the engine in limp mode thinking there was a problem.

    I had to go back in the tune and lower the misfire tables a little at a time until it quite setting the code. Same thing happens when camshafts are installed. Some guys find they have to eliminate the misfire tables completely.
