Intake or Stall Torque converter?

Asked by Mar 19, 2017 at 07:36 AM

Question type: General

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
drive?

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.
