With 3:70 gears you will be turning from 2800 to 3000 at cruse speed depending on tire size. Stay below that on the stall and when you do cruse some it will be above stall speed plus this should get you off the line good.

ATI is one of the best www.atiperformanceproducts.com
What makes one better then another is more torque multiplication, less low end slippage (if you want a streetable one) while retaining a high Flash Speed.

CNC said it best, no one knows better than the t/c manufacturer.

Give your choice a call and they will help you in selecting the correct convertor.

I would shy away from GER, good prices for the budget minded, but, quality is alittle defunct. ATI is a good company, so is B&M. Might try Georgia Convertor.

Another vote for ATI. Call them, answer all the questions they ask and your done. Great convertors also.
