    Which stall??

    I know, it's been asked a million times, but all I see in my summit is TCI, I want the highest street friendly stall, I'm thinking 3000-3500? I also want a lock up torque converter right? The TCI runs around $500, is there any other brands I can look at? anddd where can I purchase them? That should be all my questions for now. thanks.

    Vigilante and Yank are 2 of the most popular among the 4th gen owners. You're talking about $7-800 for a nice one. Vigilante also offers one free stall change within the first year of purchase which is nice, if you don't like it then have it changed. Not sure if others offer that or not.

    The best route to go would be to talk to the converter manufacture and they will want all details of the car and actually make a converter specifically for it. This is the route I went with Coan Converters on my Chevelle. Expensive but well worth it. Larry.

    I've been happy with my 3500 fuddle ( site sponsor) convertor.

    I can tell you on a stock 4l60e you will want the lockup feature unless the trans is modified to except a non-lockup.

    What I mean is,,,when the converter is not locked up in 4th gear, there is no fluid supplied to the rear planitaries, so the trans needs a few mods to compensate for this.

    Really no reason to go non lockup on these transmissions though in my opinion. Some all out race applications may delete it,,,but honestly if I were going full tilt on a race application I wouldn't be using a 4l60E anyway,,,lol.

    I forgot about the fuddle, alot of people use them as well. Sorry, didn't mean to leave the fuddle guys out Hope that helps. Larry.
