So I just bought the Trick Flow top end kit for my car. My stall speed is currently between 1600 to 1800 rpm. I have a 6 month old Monster Trans AOD and 3.27s out back. Will I be able to run this converter or will I have to bump up the stall speed? I've also read about bumping the idle up to compensate? Not too sure about that. Any advice would be greatlyyy apreaciated. :bigthumbsup

That is a pretty mild stall and what type of rebuild did you get on that tranny?
Manual valve body?
What are your intentions for this vehicle?

well this is my daily driver. the trans was a complete, upgraded rebuild from Monster Trans with a mild shift kit and upgraded internals. The valve body is not manual.
sorry i didnt state this earlier. im all flustered from some of the research ive done.

It'll work but your car will feel like a wet sock when launching. With the TFS top end kit, your engine will only be reaching its powerband from 3000rpm upwards so I suggest you go for a 3000rpm stall converter. Combined with 3.73 axle gears, you'll notice a night and day difference in launch and acceleration.
