If you have a manual, you'll probably be good against anything with around 200 kW at the fly and a hunk of V8 iron up the front. Ford autos are too slow off the mark for my liking, so that'll hinder you a bit.

My Au V8 Forte was last measured with 132rwKw - but that was before the Pacemakers. It should now be around 140 or so. Still, 135 from a 6 is pretty good - you may not win, but you'll dish out a few scares!

Stall converters are like a clutch slipping.
When the engine is under ioad it doesnt engage with the trans until a certain RPM is reached.
For example if you have a 3000 rpm stallie then at the light you could put one foot on the brake and the other on the accelerator and the car wouldnt move until you hit around 3000rpm. But if you rev it to about 2500 then let go of the brake and floor it then the car will straight away jump to 3000rpms and take off from there probs with a lot of of wheel spin. This is how i understand them.

Only 1 day left : )

hi stall converters will work ok at lower revs. You will still be able to putter off at low revs even if it's a 3000rpm converter. It will just rev somewhat higher at given speeds that it used to. Full lockup doesn't happen until 3000 though allowing you to stall the motor up higher before takeoff getting you further into your 'power band'.
They are best for dragging ... but if you have a lumpy cam or such then they take a lot of the rock and roll out of it.

they also kill your fuel allowance for the week also, but hey to some thats not much of a concern. Friends fuel went up about $20 a week after he lifted the converter speed from 2800rpm, to 3500rpm. Mind you this was in a carby fed 304 V8 with 275kw on tap, cam didnt start to rumble until 3300rpm, and then the car launched like all buggery, its now a 355 stroker (not his anymore tho)

anyhow back on track, i doubt your I6 will require a higher converter than the stock one, if your going to drag your car every week then sure get it, otherwise put that extra dosh into getting a Dev4 kit instead.

plus the dev kits improve power down low also, its not like the cam or turbo (in other cases) is only starting to build up at 2500rpm. One good thing tho is you can rip it up whilst driving along, as it will stall up more, to a better power region, and then grip and say hello to wheel spin galour. Thats only if your car has plenty of power. Doing that on the road is bad m'kay...
