    You will not need a tune for a stall under 3K, however it is a complete waste of money.

    Go with a 3600 and be done with it.

    What do they do as far as the tune goes when you install the bigger converters?

    I believe they set the idle higher depending on the outer diameter of the new converter, adjust the shift points and line pressure. I am sure there are other aspects that need attention, I am not aware of everything that it intails.

    A tune will also make it a little tighter taking off. Before the tune it would slip a whole lot more than afterwards. Makes taking off lightly much easier. Don't know technically what they did I just know it works alot better tuned.

    Thumbs up

    You should also consider a TransGo shift kit, it will beef up the transmission to accept the greater demands put on it.

    If your vehicle is an 01 and 02 model, a flexplate upgrade would be in order.

    Hey, thanks guys for all your input. I put a b&m transpak in it already, and the torque management turned off with my crane powermax tuner. Thinking about going with the fuddle 3600, there warranty sounds really good. Thanks again!
