as always though, the cable needs to be completely tight at WOT or it will not shift properly.
the 3-4 shift on a 700 is typically soft to begin with and usually doesnt have much if any shift "feel" when it makes the 3-4 shift without some sort of kit or modification to the 3-4 circuit.
as far as the converter goes, id leave it in as well as it will work better with the cam than a stock converter will. it may be a hair bit too much stall but, for the thought of maybe a weekend blast here and there at the local track if you go, it will definitely help with the cars overall performance, especially the launch and 60 ft times.
i am leaving the converter in and all that, just gonna swap cams out ans gett a cam thats works with the 2800 stall, and i figured it will change alot when i switch all that stuff, so after thats done then ill dial the trans in............

but i still think the trans should be gone over this winter and replace the converter because he had the trans and converter like this for awhile and he also didnt install a external trans cooler he used the factory one... so now i think that hurt the trans with all that heat from the factory cooler and the converter always in stall mode........... im going to have the trans out anyway when i have the engine out so i think it will be worth the time to go over it again and ill be doing it so then ill know what i have............. plus the trans wasnt shifting right since i got it so could have damage done from that.............
