X2. I would suggest our S98 type 9". As opposed to the 9.5 converter, this piece will hold close to 5 qts of fluid while using an 8" stator assem for stall management and stall variation, while being very efficient as well as having great street manners.

If someone had missed the "correct" converter combo what would hurt a car less? (A) converter too tight with a steeper rear gear as a crutch, or (B) converter too loose with less rear gear as a crutch.

Tough question, lots of variables. I think if we are talking big block, big torque with limited RPM, I believe, with data i have seen, missing it tight with with more gear is the better of the two crutch wise, torque conquers a lot of small variables. If you are dealing with a small block application, whose torque numbers are a lot higher and tends to like spinning a lot higher and does not like to be tugged on, the looser route has more of an advantage. Again, you have to consider all the variables in any given combo. Hope this helps a little.

Thanks. Cool

I guess if someone misses too tight, more power can always be added as a crutch too. Add more power if it's too loose & driving through the converter is always a possibility.
