    another thing to look into is going a lil higher on your stall. youll be fine at first but want more. ask what others like to get idea. i wouldnt go under 3000

    I paid $500 for my Fuddle 3800. It's apparently rated to 900 ft/lbs of torque so I have a bit of room to grow.

    anything less than a 3000 rpm stall is a waste

    Going under the assumption that the converter stalls at the same RPM, the 9" converter will generate more heat than the 11" due to its smaller size, it rotates faster. A transmission cooler is a must, and a deeper trans pan would not hurt either.
