They are both good and we used to run both in our LS based drag cars for years before the FTI billet units were released. Since then we have always gotten 1 tenth plus quicker 1/4 mile times in each of ours with the comparable FTI. And yet to have a failure in several championships both NHRA & IHRA.

Doing a converter install 2900 CD and need some trans tuning addvise.
I have HPTuners to tune with. Tried the HPT Forum with no luck ! Seems everybody is holding back on helping others out in the forum. Was hopeing for better luck here. Any help from you experts would be nice. Not sure why we do not have more topics for the tuneing of this A6 tranny.
Thanks ahead for any help.

Is it true with a high stall that it can throw off your DYNO numbers?

I myself am almost a year and no cooler and no problems but a higher stall will generate more heat with the additional "slippage".

So suck it up and have it done!!
I can't wait to see you.

I've run a couple 5th gen torque converters now and I would highly reccomend a trans cooler, and I think the ADM kit is very nice.
