    Yank is what I am using now and it was bought as a 3000 stall but I would say it is closer to a 2800 or lower. TCI or Precision are who I would suggest. As I memtioned Precision also allows you a one time stall change for free. Yank has been good and I stand by them but if you want a 3000 stall you better get a 3200 hundred or higher from them. Again, this is just what I have experienced.

    How hard is it to install a torque coverter? Is there a step by step on how to do it?

    I have a Yank 3000 and have had good luck with it. I also did a trans cooler which is a must if you want your trans to live a longer life. I didn't do a shift kit because the shifts didn't suffer too much but I am worried the slightly longer shift times may be causing excessive wear on the trans so I think im going to do a shift kit and restore the old shift firmness and if anything make it a little harder than stock.

    After using many brands i would say Yank is by far the best i have used, The reason there converters seem to flash 200RPM lower is they are more efficent on the street under moderate throtle aplication, But coupled with the right transmission they will put an F body sideways under full throtle aplication

    Good info! I will give Yank this that it has been a great convertor and now that I have the "Street" based 200 lower that makes sense. That also helps with MPG!

    You'll find a step-by-step here, both for the convertor and the cooler.
