i have an auto 93 classic with adv timing, obx header, aem cold air. My car really moves but from a stop its horrible, and when i go from gear to gear theres a huge lag (not high enough rpms).

i was thinkin about gettin an edge racing torque converter for the transmission. however, i have heard that buying a converter with a 3k stall speed will decrease the durability of the tranny

im not too educated on the subject and ive been searchin for hours. Id be really grateful if anyone has any insight whatsoever on the issue. thanks a lot!

Instead of doing work on the transmission, why not get some JWT S3 cams instead? It may be cheaper and better overall.

Just my 2 cents.

Not many people on here have autos. I know of one guy that has a turbo and nitrous powered auto. He hasnt had any tranny problems i know of. I believe he has a level 10 torque converter.

Ishadoff has a turbo and nitrous spool up kit, but you're correct, he does have a level 10 built tranny. You might want to PM Ishadoff and ask his opinion on torque converters since he seems to have the most built auto sr20 on this site.
