Re: A "run of the mill" 200 project.

Small update, and a bit of a sad one at that. The engine has developed a noise. Without pulling it apart I can only speculate that I may have butted a ring. So, unfortunately I will be pulling it and swapping the 351w I have on the stand in it, only because I have it. I will be pulling it apart and ...

Re: Factory C3 stall converter for 200t

Mine shifts very well behind the stock 200 on 7 psi. I am sure I am well below the threshold for maximum power, but your opinion of the C3 is definitely very different than the general consensus. Mainly I am considering slamming a converter in it since I will eventually be removing the trans to chan...

Re: Factory C3 stall converter for 200t

Xstacy, always a wealth of information. So basically, an NA 2.3 (lima) converter should get me a few RPM of stall, enough to take some lag out. Better than the 1650 factory. (I figured it was something low like that). Autozone here lists a few for under $100 with a core. A few of the bolt diameters ...

Factory C3 stall converter for 200t

Yes, yes "throw the c3 in the trash" is probably the best answer. Just curious.... 2.3ts and NA 2.3s had c3s behind them, their horsepower and torque curves were severely different between eachother and the 200. Wondering if anyone knows if there is a higher stall between those three and i...

Re: A "run of the mill" 200 project.

Well, my cruise is sometimes up a very long hill, so around 50% load I can be just around 0psi. But part throttle 0in/hg to 15in/hg the AFR can be as low as 10.5:1 or lower. In that low RPM, low load I would like to be in the 13-14:1 range. For science sake, I have a T04E .57 trim. It spools pretty ...
