...as far as tuning goes, not all tuners are NOT created equal. Go with one who has been recommended by someone you can trust who has similar modifications to his/her 5th gen. Or spend $$$ like I did, going through a couple of tuners, to end up with Ted Jannetty (who I should have went to in the first place!). Ted's mail-in tune is far superior to the dyno tune and road tune that I've had in the past. I guess all of that experience he has, has something to do with it... My mods are not complex- just bolt-ons and a 2800FTI stall. But the converter can complicate matters for some.

Have great deals on the FTI billet units....let me know. No better converter period for these lock-up trannies. We have won several Divisonal, National, and World championships in both NHRA & IHRA in multiple classes using FTI converters. If it does not perform as I claim I'll buy it back.

FTI, Yank, Protorque, Circle D, are all good converters. The Circle D triple disk is probably the strongest of the bunch and comes with a free stall. Whatever you go with make sure it is tuned correctly.

I had a 3600 on my D/D 2001 Camaro Z28. I loved driving that car. A good tune means everything.

I've ran stock, 2800, 3000, 3200, 3600, and 4500. My favorite to date is the 3600. From stock to 3600 is a big jump, but you get used to it.

Great info in this thread. Whats the opinion on 3.70 gears along with say a 2800-3000 stall on a bolt on and tuned L99? Would that be over kill on the street as far as keeping traction for a daily driver? I guess what I'm asking is would 3.70's play nice with a stall for a daily driver with occasional drag use.

The FTI 3600 will drive most other 3200's until you put your foot in it....and 1 free stall adjustment within 12 months of purchase. We have run most of the other well known brands for years and have been sponsored and recieved free units from a couple mentioned above, but none have ever equaled how quick the FTI's have been and in our classes of racing, every hundreth of a second counts.

That and we have broken one or more of every other brand we have ru through the years and have yet to break an FTI. I believe in them so much I will buy it back if it does not perform as claimed.

Had a Yank 2800 put in recently with the heads and cam. Didnt want to go to big because I will be getting a Whipple supercharger later. I wouldnt say it drives just like stock but its not too far from it. The extra thrust off the line is great and it flashes pretty good between shifts for being such a small stall. I think 3.70 gears would make it to where it drives better than stock and really compliment the stall. I also had a ADM tranny cooler installed at the same time and would HIGHLY recommend this mod for any trans stock or modded. Even when I drive the crap out of the car it doesnt get much more than 180*.

In the past I've run converters from 3600 to 5500 behind an LS engine.

I doubt I can find someone local with a 3600, but that would be pretty interesting I think. I bet the pcm tunes on these cars are tricky too.

I agree, the protorque converter is a good piece.

If anyone in Chicago has a 3200 or 3600 and would let me drive it just to feel the slippage, I will buy you a 6 pack of your finest imported beverage of choice.
