Best bang for your buck on stall converters??

hello again guys
Im going to buy a 2800 to 3200 stall, no more then a 3500 ok

which name brand stall do you think would be the best for the money?
B&M or TCI or HUGHES?? they all cost about the same money out of the jegs book but in your opinion which would act also last longer in my 406? of course there is a few other off brand name stalls out there u know but i want something about $400 & under ok thanks for your info

My money is on B&M, I run a hotshot 3400 stall and like it very well, have run it for 5 years no hiccups, I think Huges or B&M would fit, I recently learned that TCI could be a division of jasper engines and this fact has me questioning TCI products. Not a big fan of being a beta tester so B&M is the best for me. Try and keep the front wheels on the ground .

I have Transmission Specialty Inc converters. I like them VERY much. Run tight until you need the stall, then flashes up. I have currently a TSI XLS in my 69 Chevelle SS, powerbrakes at 2500, flashes to 3000 as soon as the brake is let off. It will go in my 85 GMC that has a very hot 350, and it will stall where I need it to for that motor. I have a TSI HDLS that is from 3200 - 3500, balloon plates, etc. Alot of converter for the money.

Hey guys

I just got a 'TSI stall' Transmission Specialty Inc converter...


I stuck it in last night and from what i can tell its 1 heck of a converter that wont kill your pocket,,,, I bought the 3400 to 3600 stall and it really feels great!!! I had a B&M holeshot in it before and i can already feel i big difference when i launch that 406 that thing pins me back in the seat and takes off hard!!!

Cant wait to take it back to the track to see the improvement in the 60 foot times....... thanks for all the help and info guys! Dont be scared to get a TSI stall, I think its going to be just as good as any Big brand name converter out there.........
