    What kind of converter is the best for use on a 6.2 Diesel. No major towing but want good performance. Would it be the same as a 350 converter, any specific stall rating?? thanks for the help,

    I think you'll find the stock (diesel) converter is the way to go (and I usually hate "stock"). The diesel converters had more mounting bolts to flexplate than the gas engines. Stall speed would probably be significantly lower than a gas version, although I'ver never seen a direct comparison.

    Real trucks don't have spark plugs!

    diesel converter and gasser converter are interchangable. I worked at a tranny shop for two years and we always used the same ones, I have the same converter used in gassers in my 6.2 burban and it works beautiful. I have seen one or two with multiple bolt patterens but I believe this was just a set up from a couple of years ment to be interchangable with diffenter flex plate patterns. But yes, towing with a desiel stick with the stock converter.

    You call that dirty!?
