    I remember a post a few years ago about this that was about a mile long and went on for months. I listened to the guys who said to go big and I regretted it. I went with a TCI 3800 and I really got tired of driving my automatic like it was a stick. Rolling backwards at stoplights, double footing it from a start if going uphill. I ended up getting a custom one built after my tranny died on me. I went 3200. Your mechanic is just talking about something he has never experienced. Go a little lower and you will still be happy. I will tell you this, a stall upgrade does amazing things in the 1/4. Have fun.

    I am very unfamiliar with stalls, so how does it help in the quarter mile?

    They do have lock up clutches, I am pretty sure the PCM will only command lock up in OD, but don't quote me on that. If I remember right, my SS3600 locked up around 38 or 40mph in OD with the stock PCM tuning. Now it locks at 55mph...tuned through HPTuners
