Well my car still doesn't move on it's own power. :( But that's neither here nor there. Either the used (8k mile) tranny I bought is junk or the converter is junk. The tranny expert is thinking it's the converter. If that's the case I need a new one obviously.

I told him that I didn't want a stock converter for the '94 because that's a lower stall, and I said I'd want a Mark VIII/Mustang unit. He then told me he could go ahead and get a higher stall yet.

I need to know just how high to go. This is my daily driver (or was :leftright) , and it's pretty lightly modded for now anyway. I will be putting in a PI engine and a Vortech before too many years go by. So I need something that would work well now, and will work well with my new engine/blower combo.

Can you guys help me out? Thanks.

No less than 3000..you'll be disgusted later if you go less.
What's the trans doing that makes the trans guy think it's the t/c?

When put in reverse or forward gears (1 & 2) the engine lugs down like it's supposed to, but it won't turn the tires while on a lift. It takes ALOT of throttle to get them to turn at all. We never even tried with any tires on the ground.

So somewhere in between 3,000 and 3,500? I don't really have any experience with this, but I don't want to hurt driveability. I will be getting a chip soon afterwards though if that makes a difference.

Did you use the old wire-style internal connectors and solenoids,or did you swap over to the PCB style internal connector?
If you're getting a chip,then have the chip supplier burn the chip for an aggressive lockup schedule,and you'll have no problems with day-to-day driving.
