Not to get the lt vs ls argument going to far. Think about it. lt making 400 hp has h/c/i tune, and boltons . Ls can make 400 hp stock besides tune. Unless you are talking f-body cars. BUT a cam and tune it is there. less money involved.

I don't think that dead horse can take any more lashing so no worries, no one here at least will try to debate the whole LT/LS argument. At this point in my life though I don't need anything more than 400hp N/A, it just makes me sick though knowing these new LS3s are patrolling the streets and strips with that same hp unmodified or with slight modifications. Fucking insane!!

God help the LS3 ass I beat though, I won't let them live it down gaysex and if i loose who cares right, im the underdog anyways biggrin This actually isn't a bad deal when you think about it, there is no way i can loose lol

Its all in the transmission. Rob caress's all the parts himself. Better than a king kong cam and any stock 383 strokers

if your shooting for ~400-450ish rwhp, the the takeout ls is pretty hard to beat. parts are still expensive for them if you go to start building one though.

380-400hp for an auto is the most im wanting. I actually think im shooting too high (thats what she said). I want what ever a good daily driving LE2 set up offers for an auto.

would a 3600 be alright? If you had to buy a stall over again would you think it would be a disadvantage going with a 3600 over a 3800? for a dd that is

I've got 3 3600 stalls for a 4l60e, a Yank 12", TCI 10", and a Vigilante. the Yank needs a new front cover welded on it worked when i pulled it out of the car and then it got ran over and cracked the sleeve that goes over the pump, which costs $250 to fix (by yank), the vigilante works good, I took it out of my truck last time i changed the trans and swapped for a stock converter, the TCI I'm not sure if it works but its a 10"

If you want one let me know, I'm selling them cheap.

Personally, I want to go bigger. But I think 3600 would be good for your needs. You can take mine for a spin once I get the car reliable again. If you don't but used, look into Torque Converter Services in Columbia. Mattyb runs one also.

Jeff, is your vett. good for daily driving now? Didn't know if you still had to do any more tuning to feel comfortable driving it around.

Its getting better. Its just going to take some time. Still wayyy fat on fuel down low and at part throttle cruise.

I'm having another tuner take a look at some of the data log files.
