Torque converter -tranny guy is recommending........

a 2200 rpm torque converter like the one used on an S-10 pick-up for my 700r4 that I am having rebuilt. The tranny is going into a Jaguar XJ-S with a 355 Small Block Chevy with Tuned Port Fuel Injection.

My concern is that the car weighs 4,000lbs and has a 2.88 rear end ratio. I am wondering if this is too high a stall speed for a car that will primarily run in the 1500 -4500 rpm range. The computer will operate the torque converter lock-up at highway speeds. I am not looking to win any stop light drags with this car. I am going to run an auxiliary trans cooler on this car.

Looking for opinions from the group on this recommendation to my application.

Thanks in advance,

That TC is the same TC that I use in my 1997 reg can shortbox 2wd Cheb pickup with the Vortec 350. I get about 2500 rpm of stall from it.

You will be fine with that TC as when the TCC locks, the auto behaves like a manual trasn with no slippage at all.

the L35 V6 TC is a very mild TC.
