My new Yank SS3200

Hello everyone. I figured I'd let you know what I've learned while upgrading my torqe converter this month. There was a one question I never found a good answer for before making the change, but I decided to do it anyway.

My question was this: Will I still have good engine braking characteristics while locked in a manual gear and driving in an autox or road race?

My answer: Although it is not as good as the stock converter, I am still pleased with the effect. At least it's not like holding the clutch to the floor through a corner.

I did the ADM cooler and B&M dipstick first. I needed 1 quart of fluid.

The R&R of the converter required 5 quarts of new fluid.

Figured I'd pass these tidbits along in case anyone else was wondering.

Overall, would I do it again? Heck yeah! It finally feels like a real muscle car. I'm heading to TnT at the track tomorrow, so I'll post a time slip next week. I'm sure it's quicker.
