who makes the best stall converter that is accurate and reliable for the mid range racer.
I have a B&M 3000 holeshot now and it is really tight and doesn't stall near that high behind my 383 sb. street/strip car.

I am looking for something 3-400 or less.

I have a TCI 3000-3500 in mine with the anti-ballooning plate, it works great. You get what you pay for when you buy converters!!

Neil Chance is great if you have a ton of money to drop on one. I have talked to alot of people that run the Redneck converters and they all love them. They all stall what they advertise and the help there seems to be real good to. He can stall any converter for your application and they also have anti-balloon plates if needed. I have been thinking of trying on out for the price.

I have a redneck converter and I really like it. It stalls where it is supposed to and is priced nice. This is will be my second season on mine. The only two things I have heard bad about Rednecks were from two HEAVY nitrous hitters, but for my N/A mild HP motor it works great.

I need to jump in here and ask this as I too am in the market for a higher than stock stall converter. I have a mild (depending on your standards) 350 with a TH-350 in my 79. It is always "on" the stock converter both at idle and when stepping in on the throttle. I DO need another higher converter.
Anyway, my questions to guys who have Rednecks-- I've heard all good about them here and other places. Did they work with you as for as a reccomendation based on your combo? Or did you buy "off the shelf"?
It appears like they only sell on eBay. How'd you buy?

I bought an off the shelf. They do make custom stall converters for $500 i believe. I bought mine off of ebay but they have a website with a phone number.
