ahh dont be discouraged? its no thing! as far as i know there is not very much aftermarket support for the series 1 tranny. life sux. if you have the money and can afford the down time there are shops that specialize in t/c upgrades. they modify the internal veins and other things to improve shifting and what not. the service is expensive and u have to search for who does it. that in and of itself will be a chore unless someone here knows a place that does it. if u find a place and while your there and have a $ or 2, replace the flywheel with a lightweight aluminium one. that will also improve performance. hope that helps. smile

Actually per triple edge performance , the coverters that fit the 4t65e will also fit the 4t60e. As far as what the stock stall is on the 4t60, its somewhere around 1900rpms i think.

so would the stall speed of 2000rpms be better?

agree

and I'm a stickler for stall speeds - if you do any city driving you won't like a higher stall, but 2000 will be okay.

Personally , i don't see the benefit of a high stall converter unless you're running a turbo or HUGE cam that has little power under 3krpms A high stall converter would take away high rpm power , while increasing low end torque , which is the opposite of what we need IMO. In a turbo car , a high stall helps greatly with spooling and since they have plenty of top end anyway its worth it or if you have a large cam (xpz , nic , IS3 , etc....) that doesn't have a very strong powerband until over 2500-3000rpms. Otherwise on these cars i just dont see the benefit. Not too mention the added heat caused by a high stall ( extra slipping creaes heat) isnt really good.
