What stall speed did you end up going with and what brand? How did you pay, i'm ordering mine soon but am trying to gather up the money financially to buy the edge converter for $500...

it will slide in three times... I have delt with my torque converter and all sorts of goofy problems in that area of the drivetrain since I started my 5.0 swap... make sure it doesnt get knocked off alighnment, it gets to be a PITA if you have to keep pulling out the engine or dropping the trans(which I may have to do.... AGAIN...
