    Yank Stealth 2800 Question.

    I am looking at putting a Stealth 2800 converter in my daily driver 04 GTO. What can I expect to drop off my 1/4 times? Getting a great deal on the converter, so a larger stall is not an option.

    A larger stall would be better. My guess with traction is .2-.3

    Yank / Slp

    I am thinking about going with one of the Yank/SLP 2600.

    It is a 2000 A4 with aluminum driveshaft and 3.23s

    It is my daily driver.

    you will be pissed with the performance.
    stock stall is 1800 rpm. youre not going to get much out of it.
    my 3000 drives almost like a stocker.
    i highly recommend a tci 3000 stall.
    even if you dont want a tci stall, dont get anything smaller than a 3000 rpm t/c

    I have a friend that went with one of these, and said it was just like stock, he drove my 01 Z28 with a Y3000 2.0 STR, and said it was a big difference.

    I too wish I went bigger with a 3200 or 3500 stall.

    Do not waste your money on that particular converter, it is really a redone truck converter.

    I'll be happy with .3 off the quater for the $90 purchase price of my 5000mi. Yank converter. It will be a great bang for the buck for me.

    It sounds to me that you are making your choice "price based" rather than "performance based".

    $90 is alot to spend on a doorstop.

    Save your money and do it right the first time, go with a 3200 or 3500 stall.

    I don't have much experience with converters, but if stock stall is about 1500 rpm, wouldn't a 3200 stall converter really be a little much for a nearly stock daily driver?

    I thought the same thing. But 3200 is the lowest you should go. After a few days of driving. You won't even know its there.

    Well, I hope I WILL know, right? It's this or LT headers, and it's starting to sound like a converter might be a more noticeable improvement.

    You will know when you get on it

    Converter should be your first mod.

    I'm pretty sure it won't be a doorstop. If I get .3 off my 1/4, then I will have made the right decision. Pretty cheap gains. I have had big converters in the past, not my cup of tea on a daily driver in Chicago.

    I would go Yank or Vigilante, they both manufacture a quality product, pricey though.
