    Would going to a 2000 stall make much difference?
    I dont want to spend to much more on gas and I dont wanna heat up the 700 to much either I know before I do it I need a shift kit extra deep tranny fluid pan and a big tranny cooler

    Why do you want to change the stall speed???
    The only reason you really need change the stall speed is if you have a cam that requires a higher stall speed to get it in its power band.
    The stock stall is best for all around use. Espically 4 wheeling. A higher stall just generates more heat.

    If you want a cheaper alternative to aftermarket converters, check out a stock converter from a similar year Corvette. Their stall speed is in the 2,000-2,200 RPM range for quick, hard launches off the line. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    One from a Camaro or Firebird might also be higher, but I'm not sure about those.

    Well normal convertors slip alittle bit a lock up convertor slips just like a normal convertor until a certain point were it locks solid that's the best way I can describe it which isn't very good /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif

    Kinnda sorta like sliping the clutch on a 4speed?
    So does 2000RPM stall sound good for a 700R4 with 35's and 4.10's on a truck that can be used as a DD
