These are very street friendly high stall converters.

The towing converter is a very tight low stall for a very heavy truck and dedicated low rpm hiweay towing.
Its the wrong torque converter for a mild perf S-10 / 350 vortec combo.
Thanks for the heads up, changin converters. I like a Hughes a little more than a B&M when it comes to converters. The last S10 I built I ran a Hughes 3500 and it seemed a little much for the street but it was a play toy and not a daily driver.
