How does one figure out what converter is best for your application, With out dynoing your motor to get max tq at a given rpm. Will the logger help in this???

A dyno is best, usually I can figure close on a SBC by the combination of parts. What are you looking for?

Barry, I think you could get a ball park figure. My converter guy can take your set up info, what you want to achieve and get you pretty close.

Wouldn't data info be influenced by set up and track conditions?

Most can tell ya what should be close by CI, parts in it, weight of car, gear ratio

Tell them you want it a little on the loose side also ;-)
