    Im trying a Jegs XHD 4,200 (Made by TSI) rated at 800hp Nitrous, Blower & Transbrake, looks like it should be a good converter and the price was very good! $350.00 They have very good reviews but I have never used one. Mine is coming in today

    Like a lot of things you get what you pay for.
    I like FTI converters. They will give you a free re-stall if the one you order is a little off. I suppose all the reputable manufacturers do this though.

    Well, I ordered a stall from Freak Show Performance out if Texas today. Excited to see how it works! They took all my info and called me with more questions before we ordered. I've heard nothing but good about them. I'll let everyone know. 9.5" 4000 flash 3000 stall speed. As low as 2800 depending on brakes.

    I wish I had did it with my 4th gen. I did the 3200 convertor and changed rear end from 2.73 to 3.42 and long tube headers and tune.
    Huge difference on launch. Ear to ear grin!!!!

    So is there a good chart out on the net to help guide you in selecting the right stall speed?

    Best thing to do is contact some of the major manufacturers and give them your specs and intended use. They will steer you right.

    Neil Chance converters. They're awesome. I gave him all the specs on my car and what I wanted to do with it. They build your converter to order. They recommended a 2800 stall, and right out of the box it was spot on.
