OLDS,
If you would like to try a 9" 5500-5800 Converter i have a Nice Munsinger,High HP Converter,Anti-Ballooning Plate,Inertia Ring.I used it in my 960HP BBC Injected Alky Motor 515"s,Worked GREAT!
I have went to a Lenco,with a Clutch in my Funny!So,i have it For/Sale/It has a Turbo spline.If you want to give it a Try?Then let me know?
Anyone that has a FED,Altered,or Funny is Good in my BOOK!!!
IF the Motor NOT in Front of You,then you are in the WRONG PLACE!

Thanks bbchevy,but I think that's a little too much converter for me.I'm shifting at 6600 rpms right now,I don't know if a 5500 would be okay.I'd like to have a 4500 really.Guy in town can adjust them cheap.$75 and you don't have to ship!Probably go see him pretty soon.Of course that 5500 would probably put some serious air under the front tires :shock: Thanks for the offer,though.

From what I understand the smaller ones are more effecient on the big end period. but I believe they go with the bigger in diameter because the 8" can only handle so much power. Most of the outlaw converters I see are 9.5".. Esp when you get into the big blocks with all that torque.JMO

Here is some info from Neal Chance Converters..

I called a few weeks back to order one, after giving him my info (447 SB2 [email protected], PHP @7500) and suggested to him I needed 6600 to 6800 stall, he said the one he had picked would be 6000. I asked why would I want the stall so far below my peak torque, he had no answer and said he would have Charlie get back to me. I called back twice and still have received no calls....
That guy on yellow bullet advertising for em is enough of a reason for me to never buy from them again. lol
