Torque Converter Thoughts
Bill M <y1topbanana73@xxxxxxxxx>: Feb 16 12:15PM -0500

I'd like to get some thoughts regarding my converter situation.
 
My basic combo is this...65 Coronet 'vert, 392 Poly making 405 HP @ 4,600
rpm, 472 tq @ 4,100 rpm, 3.55's, and 275/60's on the rear. ...more

Hmm - wonder if we should swap converters? I have a Lupo 9.5" that's rated at 3800, flashes to 4100 and likely need a higher stall.
These things are black boxes, in my mind.

Don - could be a possibility, but I almost wonder if I would push it to
4800! How much torque are ...more
Jason Rhoades <Jason@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>: Feb 16 01:39PM -0500

Ya that would develop some serious torque. I’d recommend staying under 3k for stall so like 2800 rpm stall would be good which could be done with 11” or 10.5” since you’re driving it not ...more

Lupo was interviewed back in 2002 about the converter stall factors to consider.
