what all is involved with installing a stall converter if i was already removing motor for a head and cam job? What all parts would I need for a c4?
Thanks

how much would this stall help me? The cam is 214/224 duration at .050 and .472/.496 lift. I was thinking of a 2000 stall....on my c4 with 3.00 rear gears(8" open)

before you pull the motor, pull of that inspection plate on the bottom of the bellhousing, and you'll have access to the flexplate/flywheel. There are 4 bolts, I think, that attach the converter. To get at them, remove them one at a time as you rotate the motor. Once they're all off, pull the motor, and there it is in the bellhousing. It slides off. Fill up the new one w/ATF and slide it on. Then put it all together again. You'll probably need a tranny cooler.

I don't know about the stall, ask some of the experts around here. Parts:
tranny cooler
converter
ATF
Also, look at the article on this site.

i would say you need a 2500 stall converter, but contact B&M, art carr, or performance automatic. their techs can give you the best answer.

Make sure you put a new front seal in the trans before fitting the new convertor.Go with a 2500 convertor.
I think you might be disappointed with the 2000 stall as it will be barely noticeable over stock..

Stock engine absolutely love 2500 stall converters. I'm talking 4000-4500RPM engines so I would say at least a 2500 stall and a 2000 like said above will not be noticable at all(meaning not worth the trouble changing over stock). 2500 stall will be a noticable improvement over stock converter though.

will this work with the 3.00 gear he has in the rear? i have a combo that is just a little different than his. the diference is that i have a b-303 cam with 224 duration @ 50. will a 2500 stall work for me or do i need more. the reason i ask is that i have not put it together yet. let me know what you think.
