why a Stall converter is good for you!
I was over browsing other V6 forums and came across a post where they were discussing 2800-3000rpm 9.5" stall converters and how much performance you can gain from them in a V6.
The car is a 97' mustang Singleport with a 4R70W and his mods are
4.10's+FMS T-lok,NX 75 shot,MAC CAI
ASP UD Crank Pulley,NOS Purge+ Bottle Heater,Flowmaster Duals
Jerry Chip,Shift kit,24lb Injectors,RGR stage 3 lower,Gaston Stage 3 upper,BBK 65mm TB,PI 3000 Stall,FMS Aluminum DS .
BOTH of these runs are Natuarally asperated.
He ran this Time with the STOCK converter.
Then AFTER installing the 3000rpm PI converter with NO other mods
Thats a gain of .64 seconds and 1.58mph from JUST a stall converter.
.28 seconds off the 60ft. says it all, that just like dropping almost full second off your 0-60 times.
He is running STOCK heads and a STOCK cam, With ported heads and a cam the gains would be BIGGER.
Gains have been seen from .6-.9 seconds on V6 stangs and should be about the same for our cars.
