Awesome article. I'll definately have to check that out AFTER I get my exhaust/4.10's/tb and other associated intake work done. Should make for an interesting ride lol.

How much is that torque converter? And would that be a good stall 3000? And how much does it usually cost to get it installed?

Its $900 something on www.tciauto.com

Its $720ish on www.summitracing.com

for the TCI StreetFighter

------------------------------------------------------

Precision Industries also sells a converter (thx JD) , called the Stallion.

"for an 01 Mustang with bolt-on's I would suggest around a 2600 to 2800 rpm stall speed."
(this info coming from Jack with Precision Industries)

The converter sells for $734.58 and comes with a 2 year warranty.
Precision Industries
800-649-7866


So I'm guessing 3000+ would be recommended if your doing a camswap or have cams.

I'm most likely going with Edge Racing's 3000-3200 www.edgeracingconverters.com

$565 you decide stall (2000-6500)

I'm doing VT stg 1/2 cams, it should benefit.

how do u know how much of a stall to get?

I have a 99. And I'm going to be doing most bolt-on's, not cams though. And eventually if I can get the money supercharge but not sure. What would you reccomend?

You sure this is the right converter?

"1994 & later Ford AODE"

They only make a "Sat. Night Special" and "SteetFighter".
