Intake or Stall Torque converter?
I am on a budget. This 82 c10 is for my
teenage son. I have a 350 block and have
53cc 601 H.O. heads off a 305. I am
ordering a cheapo engine kit, a thumpr cam,
and dont have alot of money left. I can't
decide on a stall converter or a aftermarket
intake. I guess my question is... does a stall
make a big difference? Is it more fun to
If your not rebuilding the transmission at the same time and installing a new valve body, a higher stall speed convertor on a stock trans will get you minimal gains.
If your changing the cam that requires a much higher idle speed then higher stall converter is a required item. High lift and long duration cams and stock automatic trannies just don't mix well, manuals are the best choice for any cam changes. You may find it is a problem to drive if you don't pick the right stall converter.
Rear gears if appropriate.
