    About the twin stick, I have heard that you can take your 205 apart and send the shift rails to ORD, and they will properly machine them for you. They also sell a twin stick kit.

    I'm thinkin' you'd want a lower stall converter for wheelin'. Anyone else?

    Depends on the kind of wheeling, tires size, motor, and final gear ratio. If you dont have deep gearing and have tall tires you don't want a super low stall converter unless you got a stout motor. It has alot of variables.

    I would suggest a lower stall converter given your information. Either a stock stall or maybe 1500 stall. Personally I would go stock, your tranny temps will also be affected if you have a higher stall......more slipping means more heat buildup :o
