High 13s to low 14s depending on weather, track prep, and launch.

none of your mods are giant power adders. none of your mods raise your effective power band up higher.

so, as far as a stall goes, i think 2600-2800 is as high as i'd go. the stock cam makes a ton of its power down low, you dont want to throw it all out the window.

depends on your goals, if you're doing ANY valvetrain mods, that'll change what stall you'll want. you want to plan all your mods and buy the converter that'll support them..

skip the throttle body. if you just want a turn-key head/cam package thats problem, get a lloyd elliot head/cam setup and a tune, and buy the torque converter that lloyd reccommends for whatever you're getting

never go out and buy a torque converter if you're planning for major valvetrain upgrades later

Agree with steveo.. I did that only with trick flow heads... And a 3200 stall... Skip the tb untill after all that as it won't do anything with stock heads from what I've heard

Gonna disagree with you on this one, if you buy from a reputable company, most offer a free restall within a year or so. And even if its past the free period, its usually not much at all to do, advantage to buying a quality product.

So if you are ok with installing a 'verter twice, its not a bad idea. Just throwing that out there.

Yeah but if he gets a low stall 12 inch verter, he's going to need a new one when he wants a 10.5" with a decent stall speed.
Who would get a 12 inch cavalier verter? :p
