    Cammed Auto??

    I have an 02 Z28 A4. I'm looking to get a cam installed in my ride. A couple of buddies say that I would have to get a stall converter before I get a cam. Is this true or can I run a cam with my stock stall?? thanks, Mike

    It depends on the cam. Most large cams do require a 3500 or bigger converter. Even with a small cam say a .224/.228 I would still get a 3500 converter. The stall really wakes the auto up. It gets you in the rpm band rapidly. With the stock stall you will slowly come up to that band.

    Not only that, but it will have a tendency to pull through the brakes with a big cam and stock stall.

    i have a yank ss3600 it is one of the most popular converters for the ls1. if car is your daily driver might want to go with a 3200. would be best to drive a 3600 if possible. it takes more rpm to get the car moving but puts you right into the powerband when you want to go fast. also subframe connectors would be a great mod if you do a cam and stall. i could not believe how much better the car drives with them its night and day how stiff the car is with the subframes. they are 2 point weld ins. if you do a stall you also need to do a big tranny cooler the stall generates alot of heat.

    I was actually looking at a 3600 today.. kinda pricey but from what I've heard well worth the money. My car is daily driven and I do have sub frame connectors. Definitely beefs up the suspension. Thanks for the input..

    Nothing wrong with Yank, Circle D, or Precision Industries Vigilante Series. Remember, you get what you pay for. The manufacturers that I listed are the best and stand behind their products. I have had a Vigilante without any problems and purchased a new Circle D this year and have been pleased with both.

    I'll agree, all stand up companies listed here.

    I use a Yank personally.

    You'll need one with a cam.

    you dont NEED a stall with a cam, i have been running a stocker on my 223/232 .610/.617 112LSA lsr cam for 2 years now while it isnt the most enjoyable thing to drive you can get away with it. With the stock stall my car is a turd down low until i hit the power band and it takes off.

    dewman you need a stall. then instead of waiting for the power to come on at 3k the stall will put you there right away. if you have the cash get a stall and get ready to love your car that much more.
