i found a good 200r4 for a good deal. my car is 78 chevy nova, using 2005 5.3 stock with edelbrock performer rpm set up, carb will be a quick fuel slayer, gear will be 3.42 or 3.73 still in the air, that stall converter should i use, car is around 3500pds, thanks ron c

You could use a stock convertor with a stock 5.3 if you wanted to. if your looking for a little more giddiup id use a 2500 or so.

Stock would be fine but if you want some punch, 3200 minimum.

Exactly, if yu want it to roll out and get into that power band quick but cruise fine, ateast a 3000-3200.

ive got a 5.3/2004r w 3.42 gears and 2400 stall. need more!! i might only run the once or twice a year so its not that big of a deal. I'd want a tight 3200 converter. my car ran a 13.2 @109 with a 2.0 60ft, so a converter would definitely help me out alot. i am going t56 though and atleast 3.73 gears. 3.42 isn't enough.

I have 4.30 with the 6.0, works perfect, 2000 rpm was 76 mph, was a blast onthe street. May do it again, but the rear is going in the TA. The 91 that is gettin the t56 has 3.42.
