Stall question..

When i bought the tranny and converter..he said it was a coan 3200-3800 stall...he used it on a 351w

now in my car..and stock 302 with a vortech s trim...it doesn't stall at all..its like a stock converter!! like 1800-2000 rpm

does the amount of power the engine makes effect the rpm of the stall?

also he used dextron in it. i'm using hy-gard 6354..i've read that the hy-gard and lower the stall abit..

Stall question..

Yes, power(torque) output of the engine will directly effect stall speed as well as gear ratio, type of tires, car weight, brakes.

Hy-gard can effect stall speed a bit but not as much as you are seeing. Your smaller engine likely makes a bunch less torque without boost.

Stall question..

it seems i'm able to flash the coverter to 3200 crusing from 1000rpms in 3rd.

guess i'm going to have to get a new converter if after my heads, intake and cam swap the motor doesn't match the power of the old combo
