    Help me pick the right TC for me

    Ok im going to be buying a stall here soon and I cant decide which to go with.
    I have heard the Yanks are great converter so I am leaning towards one of theres. The Fuddle I have heard are to loose and not as good of quality, but I dont know.

    This will be going in my 4l80E. I will soon be turboed, cam, etc so I want something that will work great with future mods.

    The truck WILL be used for towing about 5500lbs once a month or so.

    I can brake stall my stock TC to about 2300RPM so im not sure if the truck thruster 2600HD will be much of a gain. How about the YANK SC 3000?? or would that not be very tow friendly??

    Thanks for any help

    If you're going to turbo a 4L80e do you really need a stall? You're going to have plenty of power to start with.

    I just figured a higher stall would allow me to brake stall it more allowing more boost to build up for a better launch.

    My motor really doesnt start making its power to right around 3k so the faster I can get there the better right??

    Or am I thinking of this wrong?

    Opinions welcome

    I had a TCI witch was pretty but not the best converter IMO. I have a Fuddle now witch seems pretty good. The only bad part of the fuddle is #1 john is slow to make and ship, #2 was a real dick in a email after I called and spoke to a ladie there asking for a tracking number almost 4 weeks after I payed and was told it would be built and shipped in 3-4 days. #3 It looked like he sent me a used converter pulled from a junk yard. Sounds like a horror story but in the end and how ugly the converter is, It out performs my TCI and locks up right at 2700 and I can tow a 5th wheel if I like. I give the converter a 9/10, Customer service 3/10

    I use the 3200HD built by Yank. Get a hold to Dave. He can steer you in the right direction. I have the 80E and this stall works great. I can still tow up to 4000lbs. If i leave at 3000 rpms no traction. The stall works great and the trans never gets hot?
