    after about 35 mph the converter will lock and it will drive exactly the same as it did before the stall.....down below that it'll have more slip to it so you'll notice a few more rpm's to get the car moving. You'll wish you would've went bigger on the converter.

    Hopefully you're doing a trans cooler too right?

    We street drive our 3,200 stall all over the place and after the first few trips, I honestly do not even notice it much anymore. You'll rev a little higher to get the car moving is the biggest thing I noticed. Like Tim said, once it hits lockup speed you will not notice any difference. Honest answer, 3,200 is nice but I wish I had gone 3,600 in our car for the track.

    With the lower gears, the stall will feeling tighter. I would go much higher if you can. At least a 3600.

    I have the 3.42 ratio in my car and put in a Yank SS4000 a long with other supporting mods, like a 230/230 cam. I had it programmed to lock at 30mph in 3rd and around 35mph in overdrive and also had it tuned, which I recommend.

    Other than the decline in mpg, there's not but smiles every time you hit the gas. I wouldn't have done it any other way. Although the tune and the stall are a bit pricey, few regret the decision because of the fun to drive the car.
