    you'll most likely get a bunch of different answers to this question. Do you plan on other mods down the road like heads/cam? I ran my 3500 with bolt ons and loved it then and still love it now with heads/cam. Couldn't see me running smaller than that.

    I am in the tail end of the thought process on upgrading the transmission in our car. With a mix of street and track in the plans, PerformaBuilt has recommended I go with a 3,200 stall converter and their Level II transmission.

    the typical range of recommended stalls is 3000-4000 with most in the 3500-3600 range.
