who is running a high stall with boost

As the title states, I'm looking to see who is running a high stall with boost. I'm looking at a 4c or 5c off the shelf from circle d as I'm currently n/a. But I know I will be boosted a year or two down the road. Are you guys blowing through these converters? Or do you just have them restalled? This will be behind a 4l80 with 3.73 gears

You'll want a multi-disc torque converter for the power adder setup.

I don't know if you can buy a converter that works well for both applications. Circle D guys would have thoughts.

That's what I was thinking, I will probably just get the 5c and just bite the bullet and have them restall it later.

The 245mm 4 and 5c converters are great for a naturally aspirated setup. When you go power adder I would prefer to see you in the 258mm diameter. This is pretty much a whole different converter.

Awesome, thanks for the reply. Looks like I will be buying a second converter down the road then.
