I went and talked to the guy rebuilding my c-4 .It will be done in about two weeks.He said he ordered a 2200rpm stall convertor for it.Is that to much stall for my set up.The trans guy thinks it's just right.I cant wait to get it in the car and see if there is any difference.I'm hoping so and what type of trans oil do all of you use.I know type F but is there a brand thats better.And I'm getting a trans cooler too.Can I just run the trans into the coler and take it off the rad.The trans guy said it would be fine to skip the rad.I dont what to over heat a new trans.And have any of you used the B&M trans oil.And would a trans pan with cooling fins be worth it.
Ok I'll stop now,Steve you really shuld put a limint on how words I can post at a time.

It depends on your cam. You have only a 2.80 in the back so you can't compensate for a sluggish launch. I wasn't happy with a 2200 stall when I had a cam very similar to the Comp Cams 280H. I had a 3.0 rear. When I broke my tranny I went to a 2600 stall and I still thought it was a bit too low. You have a bit more torque with that 351W as I was running a 289 at the time.

a 2200 stall should work fine in your application. as for fluid, run the type F since it is available everywhere( your local supermarket carries it!). this way if you have a leak you can get fluid just about anywhere.

Ron,

2200 stall ain't nothing! Don't worry about it on the street. When you get up to 3500 to 5500 then it's time to get a good cooler.

Not too big. You will hardly notice it during normal driving. Pass on the B&M Trick SHift fluid. Go with a name brand type "F" fluid only.

Use normal Type F, and the stall isnt too big. (where have I heard that before )
When I was running my old race convertor on the street, 4600 stall, that was a bit much. And I was also running a 4.71 gear for awhile. Talk about impracticall

Thanks guys,I dont want to get in that bigger is better rut.
And about a cooler will it be fine without running it intot the rad, too.In other words can I use just a trans cooler by it's self,and will it cool the trans enough without it going thur the rad,too.

I tried that cooler thing without the radiator. I also had a trans temp guage in line with the output from the trans. It overheated in about 1/8 mile!!
My cooler was an AUXILLARY cooler meant to work WITH the radiator cooler.

Make sure the cooler is designed to work by itself.

The radiator also warms up the trans fluid to normal operating temperature quicker in the winter. That's a good thing.

No special fluid necessary for your C4. We have a 2400 stall in our FMX behind a mildly built 351W and it really woke the car up. You'll like the results.
