I have a shift kit. The converter can be done. The only option is to take a factory converter and change the fin angles inside it and put it back together. This would change the stall speed 500-1000 RPM depending on mods but would make the car much quiker due to putting the thing in a more useable RPM range quicker.

yes modified stock converter, you actually must send them YOURS to mod it...... ask Lepak91 how HE feels about his level 10 converter... Its basicly exactly the same as stock. Id say itd be worth if for say $300... but NOT for the $5-- they charge.

Yeah, but is he 'spooling' up the torque converter right off the line? Ideally, you should torque-brake while in 2nd gear, then dump it into first when you let go of the brake. That's how you're supposed to race an automatic with a high stall torque converter. At least that's how you're classically supposed to do it. I dunno about a Cougar, or how well the tranny is going to like it. :tongue:
