    Hello, first of all love your site! Hey I have a 84 Jimmy just got rid of the tired rattle box. Moved on to a slightly modified 4-bolt 350. Everything bolted up just fine, and drives well. But I was wondering about the torque converter. Does it need to be changed, because of the diesel to gas swap? Any help would be apprieciated.

    yes it does
    IIRC stall speed is different and it will drive funny if you leave the diesel one in there
