    Which TC to go for?

    Its my DD and I dont plan on modding the crap outa it, So far just lid, catback, headers, and maybe a mild cam in the future with a dyno tune of course. Thunder racing recomended a 2800 stall. seems kinda low to what guys on here like. I do Mostly city driving so... I dont wana kill my MPG, just wana teach a lesson to some local Ford guys Also Should I go with TCI or what?

    How do you like the TCI? I hear they are a little looser then some others, how is the 3200 for D driving. Did you notice a big drop im MPG with yours? Thanks again for the help man.

    I would not go any lower than 3K on the stall.

    You should beef up the rear suspension with LCA's, Torque Arm and Subframe connectors.

    alot of ppl just talk shit cuz they hear other ppl talk shit, TCI is a good converter. i say go with TCI but every ones car takes to diff things, no less than 3000 stall speed. my converter is good with dd and not to bad on gas if i you baby it but who does its an LS1 and i like to play with mine

    ive used tci converters in 3 different cars.
    anytime a stall is loose feeling its because its a low STR. all the converter companies have low STRs along with higher ones.
    i have a tci 3000 streetfighter stall and its tight. it has a STR of 2.2 1.
    its a great DD stall.
    it shave .6 tenths off my e.t
