Stall Converters

I was reading in an article in a mag about crow cams where they explained what to get in a cam and how to set it up for the best results. They suggested that for acceleration that doesn't kill economy was to have a 3000 rpm stall converter. This was for a moderate cam. I was curious as to what the stall converter does and how much does it cost?

A stall converter is another name for a torque converter.

er, 3000rpm sounds a bit high for street use, and would create a LOT of heat in your auto.

i always tell people the first thing to do when they get a car with an automatic gearbox is to fit the biggest oil cooler they can afford - the quickest way to stuff an auto is to get it hot, trust me on that one, and the higher stall you get the more heat is created.

i think a 2000-2500 stallie would be the way to go if you get a decent sized cam, but if you have the choice go lower rather than higher, unless you want a race engine specificly for a traffic light gran prix a high stallie will annoy you and use heaps of fuel.

Thumbs up

Never a truer word spoken. In other words, right on the button.

Keep everything stock, and just make loud screeching noises at the lights! Haha
