B&M Torkmaster 2400 rpm stall converter vs. stock torque converter???
 
Hello, I have a chance to buy a B&M Torkmaster part number 20404 2400 rpm stall converter for a th-350 for $65.00 that has about 3000miles on it.

Is it worth it??? What if any improvements would I see compaired to the stock th350 torque converter, with a basically stock 77' 350. This is all going to go into the 350 beetle that I'm building.


Thanks for the help


bye

You may have already bought the converter.

So the question, was it worth it to 'you' ?

You should notice around a thousand rpm stall increase over the stock converter off the brake pedal.

You may find that a car as light as yours may like a stock converter unless the engine doesn't idle good.

I didn't buy it, I figured that if it wasn't going to make a big differance then I could find a better way to put the $65 in the project.


The engine idels good, its a stock 77' remanufactured 350 with ~5000miles on it with an eldelbrock performer intake.
