and early (82-early 84) 700r4 converter will work, but for what been mentioned, a GN converter should be about perfect for a mild street application.

|cool rockin daddy||The D5 is the special high stall speed converter you are referring to, F-Bird. It was the highest stall converter available on '87 Grand Nationals. 2200-2400 behind the turbo V-6. I have no doubt it is the right converter for me but I am a little scared off by the horsepower capacity of that converter as I can't find it anywhere and there are a lot of aftermarket converters only rated to 350 horsepower.|

|cool rockin daddy||yeah, that's why I bought from him. Great to deal with. Really good deal on the trans. Just trying to figure out what the equivalent converter is to a D5 if I can't find a D5.|

Taking delivery of a Stage 2 2004R trans from Extreme Automatics. Lonnie said keep the converter as "tight" as you can and said a D5 from a turbo Buick would be a real nice converter for my setup. Have a 400 HP small block with a cam that has 218 and 224 duration at .050 (Comp Cams Extreme Energy 262). Car is a 69 Camaro with 3.42 gears. Thought he said a D5 had a stall of 2200-2500. Sound about right for my set up?
