I would have to disagree on this statement. A Vigilante 2600 stall in my GTO dropped 8/10ths off the ET and is much more driver friendly than my 3400 stall WS6 was. Being a heavier car by almost 300 lbs. makes the converter stall higher anyway when your foots in it but driveability is much better the rest of the time. Just my opinion, you know what people say about opinionsAdam4356 said:anything under 2800 not really worth the trouble.
It's very daily driveable and gas mileage will not suffer, but your tires will get smoked. If you do this you have to get some better tire or you will just be a smoke show.
I found these two sites very useful in explaining how a torque converter works.FLORIT said:What's the difference between the torque converter and the clutch? What does stall speed mean? Which is the more affordable upgrade? I'm trying to add performance parts a little at a time without selling the house. If I could get either the torque converter or the clutch ordered, delivered, and installed before Friday night at the drag strip, which should I choose? Thanks.
