which Torque converter do I need?
« on: May 30, 2011, 05:49:51 PM »
I've ordered my 200R4 transmission and have been looking at torque converters on summit etc...I really don't know which one I need.  engine is a 461 (eagle kit from butler)  with a comp cam xe 274 which recommends a 2200 stall...i think I have an 1800 stall in my th350 now...can't remember. If it means anything, I'm planning on doing a head swap to KRE heads latter this summer. I am unsure of all the factors that need to be considered when choosing one.  The car is not for racing. Thanks

If you do call one up and find out more, please share.  The PO of my car said he wanted to get a new TC but I have no idea what I would get if I replace it.

will do. I've been on the turbobuicks forum talking to those guys...I took evan's advice and I emailed a guy that they were raving about with my specs, so waiting for him to get back with me.
