And as far a torque converter goes, so a 3000 stall lock up converter will lock up even if it is below the stall rating of the converter? The 4l60e has a .70 overdrive and the rear end is either a 3.73 or 3.83 (can't remember which), that means at 60 I would be doing only around 2000 rpm. Also does the lockup on stall converters operate just the like the stock converters or do you wire them up some other way?

Yes everything will work the same as the original converter from the factory. I run a 3000 stall (700r4) and have 3.73 rear gears and it works just like the stock converter did. It will lock up below the stall rating.
