Stall converter

Thinking bout buying a 3600 edge street convert for my 94 camaro for 300 bucks my car is only a bolt on car right now and I plan on doing a h/c install later my question is is that to much stall for a bolt on car or will it be good

Re: Stall converter

I've seen plenty of ppl run any where from 3000 to 3800 on a bolt on car. I think is safe to say ur good. I personally would have no concern running a 3600 on a bolt on car. Especially if u plan a h/c/i in the near future

3600 is alot of stall for a bolt on car, especially if it's full weight. BTW, Edge converters are junk. I've seen way too many come apart and not work worth a crap if they work at all. They're great for destroying transmissions.

I'd also like to add that I work closely with a local converter shop that does all my cut and cleans. I've seen inside most of everyones converters. There's a reason Edge converters are so cheap...Because they're a crappy converter.

I've had two with great results, customer service is great and I don't consider $600 cheap for a converter. Been racing and street driving mine for four years now. I know lot's of people that run them and no problems.
