help me choose a Torque Converter (stall)

Hope to get some feedback on torque converters, what you have, brand/name and stall speed. Also what pros/cons you have seen with it, if you could please list some mods to go along with it.
Street feedback is important as it needs to pass the wife test.

this is my revised build plan so far, I would appreciate a suggestion on a stall speed also.

10.3 compression 426 stroker
PPP 6.1 stage 2 218/224 570/555 @113LSA cam
mild ported heads
ported intake and 90mm TB
OBX headers, no cats magna flow mufflers inplace of the resonators.
Blue top selonoids, until I can buy a SHR viking.

Well, Ive got an FTI 3200 and all i can say is I really wish I had a much bigger one.It drives like stock and just was disappointing. It does stall higher but I would go somewhere in the 4000+ range in the future. mods are in my sig.

I just installed the SHR/3000 stall and with S/C blows the tires off in this cold weather
through 1 and 2. Until I see it run at track, It's enough. No wife test here, she won't set
foot inside, ever since she put it in ditch her 1st time driving crossing intersection and
gunning it. You gotta floor our toyota sienna to actually move.

Great feed back! How do they feel normal driving stop light to stop light? Wanted to know if they free rev until stall or act normal/similar to stock until lock up?

Usually anything in mid 3's is going to stall up a little before you can feel it move. It's nothing radical like a race car.

That is a really tiny cam for a 426 and it's gonna make peak tq really low. No need to have a high stall at all with that cam choice. FTI is what you want. PERIOD.

I would say in normal driving with my 3200 there is absolutely no difference in driveability what so ever. It would be 100 percent wife friendly

Bills Dominator converters are custom made for each Jeep.

If you give him the mods/specs of your Jeep along with some data logs and dyno sheets he will build the converter specifically for YOU.
