I am in need of a high stall torque converter. the one from clarks the C9216HP is a good one ive heard but is there another one from someone like summit? or even amazon? I am having one heck of a time finding anything that is said to be a match to it.

You won't find anything. Corvairs are specific the them. One of the big converter rebuilders (can't remember the name now) does list one for a Corvair but it would be stock. PG-1 IIRC.

What are you trying to build?

Clark's Hi-Stall is for AC'd cars ... ie; ones with 280 cam or greater... maybe 400 rpm above stock.. IIRC

If you are building for drag or AX / Street... you want one cut for 2000-2600 rpm... that's "custom"... to your engine and car... usually takes two or 3 tries to get it right..

For Competition only.... 3500+


"Hughes" is the shop in the SE USA..

Find a TQ shop locally and tell them what you want. Lots of shops out west...

DaveMotohead knows of a shop in the Palmdale, Ca. area.

Many one have one they have successfully used in an AutoX car? I'm actively looking too...

Eric...

My "speedSkater was 1400 lb/ 10 gal gas. and me in it..

145 ci 102 with heads cut to 10.5 CR. Stock PG with 3.55 gear

20" GYr B-S's for AX 28" tall Street tires...

Tried a purchased Custom that gave 1500rpm power brake stall..

2nd was 2600 rpm.... launched much better and no noticeable slip in corners..

Your car will be heavier.... engine HP ???

I say start with your specs and ask for 2500 rpm... try it and then decide if you want to spring for another cut on another convertor.

They list a Corvair Converter (and show a pic). They have the option of 400-500 over 'stock' or 600-700 over stock.

Anyone see any issues using a car with a high stall converter in a parade? Too much heat build up?

WM, that might be a problem.... but idling isn't much HP! gg

The biggest problem... usually with heavier car, is low speed control... like when loading on a trailer... you have to goose it to get it to move...
