    Which trans cooler do you have? You definitely want a higher stall. Look at a Circle D 4c 3600-3800 stall.

    The trans cooler is the biggest one off of monster transmissions and ok I figured I’d need a bigger one but didn’t know about it being higher for a dd

    IMO the best and biggest trans cooler is the TruCool 4000gvw. If you want a car that rocks with those cams you're going to want a 3600-4000 stall. My 3600 isn't noticeable until you accelerate quick or hammer it.

    Those are high stalls for a street car. I'd reccomend using a deep aluminum trans pan to help keep the fluid cool.

    Not at all. A Modular engine likes a 3600-4000. Whether he goes 3200 or 3800 there won't be much if any temp change but the performance difference is significant. You do not need a deep oil pan. Good to have but not needed. All these converters have lock up so by 45mph your locked and not generating much heat. A nice quality trans cooler is all that is needed. The hottest my trans ever gets is 165 and that's after a long WOT or dyno pull. Temp has never been higher. Everyone always goes too low on the stall and then kicks themselves in the ass. Give Circle D a call to see what they recommend. If it is truly a daily driver they will probably say 3200-3600 range which I believe would be their 3c version, but with those cams your power band has been raised so you should really consider something around 3500-3800.

    I guess that's true.

    I put both coolers and aluminum pans on both my 04 and my sons 03 when I built the transmissions. They only have 2400 converters in them right now but i figured it was worth the $ to make them last as long as possible considering how much I spent building them.
