    Stall Converter

    Please help me! My friend has a 2500 stall converter in his F-Bod from Midwest Converters. He kicks my butt off the line. Do I need a higher stall to catch him or is 2500 good. I have stock gears and a hot cam.

    I've got a Midwest 3500 stall nitrous converter and it works great. Along with the new converter I put in some ChemTech racing transmission fluid. Runs cool and shifts firmer than before.

    I found their web site and talked to Ed. Very knowledgeable. Not the cheapest but quality never is. I will try it in my new converter and report back. Thanks for the tip.

    Guys, I installed the Midwest 3000 stall converter. I should have listens to the people that know. Thats you guys. 3500 would have been better. It did cut off a half second over the stock converter though. I might try a 3500-3800. Midwest said they would be glad to exchange it at NO CHARGE. The guy there is great. I think his name is Fred. He told me to use a 3500 and I opted for the 3000. Also, Is it normal to cut off .550 of a second but only gain 4 MPH? Advise please.

    Hey , you people at Midwest Converters get your act together. A lot of us LSX guys run your converters so why don't you become a Sponsor of this site? Good people out here. I know it would help guys like me that don't know much about torque converters

    I also have a 3000 stall but its TCI brand. I cut off almost .6 tenths.

    I used chemtech 5w30 synthetic oil. Amazingly i got 4 or 5 more hp at the wheels and then a retune by corey simmson at simmsoN automotive and found another 11 hp. Things just keep geting better. Maybe the exhuast next, any suggestions.

    do the free mods if you haven't already!
    headers, free flowing exhaust and a retune should get you another nice bump in hp
