    Torque Converter

    Hey guys i am thinking about changing my 5speed to an auto. I'm going to use dash,wiring harness,ECM from a 94SC. 2001 4R70W trans. Anybody get me straight on a Torque Converter? My car is a 93sc 3700lbs about 400whp, 400tq. 3.73 gear. How much stall for a streetable car? Single disk or multi? Locking or non locking? All input appreciated.

    Where does your car make peak torque? But 3-3500 would be good. If you want to lock it on track get a triple plate.

    Thanks Chris, i dont remember what rpm the peak torque is. I'm looking at a PI multi disc locking 3500.
