What size stall should I get......

This is a discussion on What size stall should I get...... within the Automatic Transmission forums, part of the Drivetrain category; Also, lots of new folks think you have to rev the motor to the stall speed to get the car ...

    Also, lots of new folks think you have to rev the motor to the stall speed to get the car moving, which is not the case. The car with a stall will act "normal" for the most part. It's more like you can dump the clutch at a certain RPM at any time under full throttle. So if your stall speed is 3500 imagine driving along in a stick...then mashing the gas and @ 3500 RPM you pop the clutch. The cool thing is prior to that everything is normal...you just gotta add a tranny cooler.

    That's a good explanation...I don't even notice my 3600 stall anymore...really after the 1st week or so.

    If I remember correctly, I believe the stock convertor is 1800.

    i put a TCI 3k stall on my bolt on car and mann did it turn into a different car..traction is deffinitly a problem now, my car was sick the way it would hook before the stall on the same 275 nitto extreme drag or my 275 mickeys that it sits on now..def. going to have to do some suspension work like lca's and panhard bar..maybe softer shocks and springs. I'd soon rather have not put the stall in and ran on my stock one again..ah hell ill just put slicks on it

    Why not just rebuild the one you have?

    It will. I run a Yank 3600 on my car and it drives fine on the street. Just remember to install a tranny cooler for the added heat.

    Oh, i thought you had a performance converter already. I was saying to rebuild the performance converter and just replace the clutches...my bad.

    You can go bigger if you wish, just needs a tune to get everything you want to get out of it.

    The flash is almost instant. Don't worry about that. If you get a 3600 and a tune, you will be fine...trust me. I am going from a 3600 to a 4000 (new stall)

    mash it on the street and you will probably have traction problems, but roll onto the throttle and you will really like it

    I only have long tubes, 3" ORY, exhaust, ls6 intake and i had the 3600. I was happy, then even happier after I got it tuned for the stall.

    I won't try and convince you anymore...it's up to you.
