Default 3500 stall converter, 2000gt, before and after

So my old torque converter got thrown into my brother bolt on 2000 gt

His best times previously were 13.7s with a 2.05 60 foot

With no changes other than the 3500 stall he was able to drop that time down to a 13.2! His best 60 foot and time with my slicks was 13.22 with a 1.82 60 foot

He ran on his street tires for ****s and giggles and was able to pull a 13.35 with a 1.9 69 foot.

I figured he would pick up more with the slicks but at his power level they didnt help much.

Anyways, thought it would be good piece of info for any automatic guys out there.

Cliff Notes:
3500 stall takes 2000 gt from 13.7 to 13.2 with no other changes

Always hear a good stall was worth a 1/2 second. Guess there's the proof.

Id like to get an old beater 4.6/5.0 with a stalled/geared auto to run the footbrake/trophy street classes here at the local 8th mile tracks. Me and the wife were just talking about it last night. But then that'll start diggin in to my procharger funds

Nice gains with just the stall!

Me too, but I guess it just doesnt have the power and its also a completely full weight car.

My car did 1.64 60 foot with the same converter for reference but I thought his would do 1.7-1.8s

The 4.6s are weak out of the hole, before the converter the best it would so was 2.05 or so.

I can tell you this, its insane how consistent his car is lol.

It will run within a tenth 10 times in a row, I swear.

Good info for those wondering whether or not a stall is worth it. Its the cheapest way to knock off 5 tenths (in a 2V) for sure.

Ill take a look at the exact slips later and post back, I know his 1/4 mile MPH stayed pretty much the same 102-103

As far as modifications:
2000 gt auto
4.10 gears
accufab tb/plenum with c/l intake
93 octane sct tune
bassani catback exhaust with x pipe

Yes for sure, honestly I think the gains would only get better with boosted or more radical setups. I would almost guarantee that my centri car saw .75 off the 1/4 if not a full second.

Getting that blower spinning up and going makes all the difference.

Alright so I got some data for you guys

Before:
60: 2.035
330: 5.78
1/8: 8.83
MPH: 80.46
1000: 11.465
1/4: 13.69
MPH: 101.3

After:
60: 1.82
330: 5.41
1/8: 8.42
MPH 81.56
1000: 11.0
1/4: 13.23
mph: 102.28


So you can see that the stall knocked 4 tenths off the 1/8 mile time and increased the MPH 1 mph in the 1/8th.

AS expected from the 1/8th on is about the same, the converter is locked at that point so that's how it should be for the most part.


Heres the street tires slip:
60: 1.93
330: 5.54
1/8: 8.545
MPH: 81.63
1000: 11.15
1/4 13.35
mph : 102.4

I was impressed that the car still picked up a good bit of time even on street tires.
