Ok well what do youall suggest I just installed my crane 216 :rck: And I have stock gears and converter.....Should i get the gears or the stall I dont have alot of money right now due to the holidays so im kinda leaning to the 4:56 gears? :help:
From what I understand the 216 really needs a converter to get it out of the hole, I guess it's a bit of a dog below 3000 RPM's. Although I'm not too sure about Heath's above statement, I'd do the converter first quickly followed by the gears, because gears ROCK!
Hey I had the 216 with a TCI 3000 stall, and that was an awesome combo. My duarang has AWD and 3.55:1 gears. With the AWD "all wheel drive" it would burn the tires a bit. I removed the Crane and installed the Comp 260 because of stalling issues. I went with a lower stall with the comp 260 . I have the 3000 stall for sale in the classified section.
I would go with the converter first, because even with the gears and that cam you will need the the extra stall speed for that cam. The higher stall will put you at the rpms that you will need to be at. Remember that the Crane 216 is more of a mid to upper rpm cam, it will want to spin up quicker.
This is my honest advise coming from my personal experience. I'm not promoting my T/C .
