Monster Transmission Shift Levels
Steve from Monster Transmission's Testing Dept. explains the different shift levels Monster offers. Then go on actual test drives to see the difference first hand in Monster's Stock '93 Chevy Silverado 5.7. This test truck has stock gear ratio and only minor modifications for testing purposes. The purpose of this video is to help everyone get a better understanding of the different shift levels. Here are three options for your transmission's shift: Level 1 : Shift level one has a stock factory shift with small modifications to improve durability of the transmission. Level 2 : Shift level two is a firmer shift for mild performance and towing applications. Level 3 : Shift level three is for high performance vehicles using a high stall converter. This is the Shift level for clients that want a tire burning shift so they can say 'Eat My Shift!'

Torque Converter Selection - Summit Racing Quick Flicks
What does a torque converter do? A torque converter is a fluid coupling device that transfers power from engine to transmission and multiply the torque being created by the engine. There are three major components that make up a torque converter. The Fluid Impeller is the only part of the torque converter that is physically attached to the engine. The impeller creates fluid motion within the converter to create a transfer of power. The Stator redirects fluid flow towards the impeller. The Turbine Assembly transfers the motion between the engine and the transmission. Another important aspect to understand is Stall Speed = RPM when the engine sends all available power to the transmission. Torque converters have 2 different types of stalls that they can produce. The 1st type is Foot Brake Stall. Foot break Stall is an inaccurate way to measure torque converter stall. Flash stall is the actual stall of the torque converter. Flash stall is always listed in range which is determined by different attributes such vehicle weight, gear ratio and tire size. The flash stall rating is the only true and most accurate stall rating that you will find on a torque converter. A few rules of thumb to take from this video are: First select a converter that stalls at 500 RPM higher than the camshaft. Converters installed in a big block engine usually stall 300 RPM higher than a small block. Choose a converter that will stall below the highway cruise RPM.
