its a k&n air filter, not charger LOL

a good stall is about $600. dont go cheap on a stall you will regret it!
the converter goes on the flywheel and thats the part that is closest to the tranny inside the bellhousing, its basically the clutch in a stick.

unless you're planning to go to the track and bracket race, stick with the standard. autos are not as reliable, and if you do any internal modifications, you would need to get a higher stall. some people like higher stalls, but they feel like crap, they are expensive, inconsistant, and you have to have them rebuilt ever so often, no worth it imo, it's the one thing i regret about doing to my car.

Let me guess you have a TCI or B&M converter? Granted a good stall is exspensive, but that's about the only thing that's true in your statement. I have a Yank 4000 in my car, it's consistant as can be (the car will 60 foot in the 1.5's unless there is oil on the track) I have not had to rebuild it and it sees tons of street miles, and the car feels absolutly awsome with it. If you want consistantly fast times at the track, get a good stall (it will cost $600 or more), the bonus is they are easier on the rest of the car (rear end, suspension etc) than a stick car.

no, it's a midwest, which is not a cheap conveter. even when it was just installed, I didn't like the way it felt, and made the car sound. It's all in just what you like. I would buy another stall if i still raced as much as I used to, but it's all street nowadays, and not knowing if when i push the gas if the car is going to lurk or bog drives me crazy! I'm putting a t56 in my car once i get the heads bc i'm so over the autos and stalls, but that's me, that's what i like, some people would disagree
