You should be fine on the highway. Mine is perfectly normal until I nail it. Then it flashes and BAM off I go.

When I ordered my converter, I called Circle D and spoke with Chris, really nice guy and gave him all my specs and numbers and what I was using the car mainly for and that I wanted the 4200. They custom build each one for your needs. I also got the billet front plate on it. Took about 3 weeks to get it..

Same here, on the highway I have no issues at all, nice and smooth at 75-80mph. Locks up at 55 in 5th gear..Cruises at 1600-1800rpm.

On the highway cruising at 75 the temps will go down to around 165 or so, and around town normal driving it is around 180-199-200, then when I get going again I can get it back down to around 175-180.. Spirited driving she will run anywhere from 195-210.. Thanks in advance..
Here’s the one I bought. https://www.ebay.com/itm/113885979609
It’s the one without the bypass for cold weather.if I was in an area that got cold for extended periods of time I would have went with the lpd4739 because it comes with the bypass for cold weather.

Highway shuddering or stuttering are from incorrect transmission tuning.Once again Iím running a 3800 Fti triple and have no shuddering etc.
Circle d also makes a good converter.
I just went with Fti because I got a good deal on it.
And yes you will have to get a trans tune done once you install the converter.
Neither one will have shuddering or a studder feeling if tuned correct no matter which stall you choose.You could easily run a 4200 stall on this car and with a good tune would have no ill effects except the engine revving higher when you start out and a fuel mileage drop.
Not saying thatís what you want or need just donít go with a different stall then your combo needs for fear of it shuddering or stuttering.
