yeah, now i just have to decide on what stall to get. im leanin toward a 3k, but not sure. this car is a DD, so i ain't goin with anything bigger than 3500 for damn sure.

IMO even a 3500 is a bit on the small side. With that cam I'd go with a 3800 minimum. Best would be a 4200.

you'd be amazed at how nice some of the bigger stalls feel. You could get anywhere from a 38-4200, and have it built fairly tight, and you will hardly notice any difference from stock, with a good tune of course, until you mash the gas!! :D

im goin to give Allan a call and see what he recommends. im keepin the stock gearin, only goin up if a 12 bolt or 9in doesn't take a 3.23. its goin to take a while for me to get the tune right with the setup.

Stick with the 3000 you will be glad you did any bigger on the street and you will not enjoy the car. You will still have wheel spin all over the place and be able to drive the car great mach to the stock gears.

I'd say a 3500-4400 would be ideal. I really think a well built 3600-3800 stall would be right up your alley. People have driven my 4000 stalled 3.42 geared car and commented on how it didn't feel that much looser than stock. A ported TB for snappier throttle response and not weighing your car down with a ton of unnecessary stuff along with a good tune really makes the car a pleasure to drive, even with a big stall.

thats not a HUGE cam but a 3000 stall is too small,
keep in mind if you are getting a lock-up style converter that you will only be effected by stall speed in first gear... that will not effect daily driving MPG much ...

i doubt 1.85 rockers will work good with the F11. you would be better off with 1.75s if you are changin rockers. the ramp will be too severe with that cam. im still waitin for my cam :( , last i talked to them, they were waitin on my pushrods

X2 except i would go one further and say stay with the stock rockers for most every application. the one exception IMHO would be a motor that will be rev'd north of 7300-7500 rpms, then pony up for shaft mount.
