2300-2800 stall converter

The bill keeps mounting - ended up having the original long block rebuilt after the engine I bought calved .

It's going to be 375-400 hp once it's finished, and the builder is suggesting I upgrade the converter accordingly. Any recommendations? I know I have to get one for the AMC version of the Torqueflite - looking for brand/specification suggestions.

Still wrestling with whether to pour more money into this thing, and have Novak build me a 4L60E with their adapter kit. I will NEVER learn.

you can get the factory hi stall unit rebuilt from transtar for about 100 bucks.

the hi stall is about 200-300 rpm higher than the lo stall that jeep used behind the v8. it's works good for what you are doing.

Where are you purchasing your engine?

Are you purchasing an H/P AMC360 from CME Engines? I did (415hp at 420lb torque) and they required an 1800 to 2800 stall speed converter...

My transmission guy "Voodoo Daddy Transmissions" had my stock one rebuilt to meet this requirement, to keep from having any fitment issues. Also he added a shift kit.

keep in mind that if you go for high stall you maybe get shift problems
if you don't have a lock up !!
for street use it means that the trans shift up to the second gear and in that rpm the converter is still spinning . in that case you need to modified the transmission shift points !!
