    When they say stall its refering to a stall converter or torque converter. Every automatic has one but at a small stall.
    It hooks to the part of the transsmission and what it does basicly does is let you launch your car at a higher RPM. If you have a stock rear end I wouldnt get anything to big, I IMHO i wouldnt get one any bigger then 3200 which lets you launch out of 3,200RPMs.
    I hope that makes sence and helps you

    It's a must for an auto car if you want to run at the track, FYI.

    Never experienced a yank, heard they're great. I have had experience with vigilante 4000 and a fuddle 3200 and no complaints!

    A Stall is one of the best first mod for an A4. I run a vig 3200.

    misinformation.

    the rear end is not going to blow because a stall is too big.

    I have Yank SY 4000 and it's been in the car for about 75000 miles with no problems. They are a little more spendy, but well worth it in my book. A stall can knock off .5 tenths in the 1/4, and help on hiway rolls too. Best first major mod you can do for an A4.

    Yea but it does help it break. Lauching it too hard, suddenly pushing all the power all at one on the rear like that does speed up the time for the rear's death

    the stall itself will not break a rear end.
    sticky tires on the other hand will.

    ive had a stall going on 4 years now and all is fine.
    im also running decently sticky tires and making 380 to the rear.

    even without a stall, just beating on it will can snap the rear.
    A4 cars dont break rear as much as six speeds.

    I run a 3400 fuddle converter with a b&m super cooler and love it. 675 for the converter and like 75 for the cooler. Installation cost could vary, but I did mine myself.
