LS1 SS4000 Z/28 Camaro with SS 4000 Yank stall converter
Here is a 2000 Chevrolet Camaro, Z/28 (LS1) equipped with an SS4000 (SS 4000 Yank converter). QTP (quick time peformance) long tube headers, magnaflow Exhaust, with a 3" DMH cutout and nitto 555R drag radials.
The drag radials can't find much traction.

2002 Camaro Z28 with a Yank PT4000 torque converter
Normal driving in my 2002 Chevy Camaro Z28 to show how loose it
is with a Yank PT4000 torque converter. It also has 3.23 gears, Kooks LT
headers and off-road y-pipe, and Magnaflow catback. There are a couple of
WOT pulls about halfway through the video.
Torque Converters Explained -EricTheCarGuy

In this video I cover the purpose and operation of the turbine, stator,
impeller, and torque converter clutch. I hope the explanation and
practical give you some insight into how these parts work to not only
transfer power from the engine to the transmission, but also how it drives
the transmission pump and doubles the torque output of the engine when you
take off from a dead stop. I've wanted to make this video for some time.
In fact I've had the fans sitting in the back of the shop for almost a
year. Now that I have the Automatic Transmission Dissection video under my
belt I thought I would add a torque converter dissection into the mix. I
hope you enjoy this video and that it gets you a better understanding of
torque converter operation. Especially since I killed my air compressor
cutting this one in half.

Yes this is indeed 'take 2' of this video. I changed a few things to make
the information more accurate. I am going to be posting the old video for
Premium Members at EricTheCarGuy.com just for fun. Here's a link to more

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
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. For additional
information and to check out Summit Racing's selection of Torque
