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, :D 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 .

i'm a huge fan of 456's but i'm gonna say TC on this one. you have 275/40 dr's which are nice and short. just gonna have to really heat those ****ers up with a TC. Hows that 216 feel??

I hear that if you go with 4.56 gears then you don't need to do the TC or vice versa?

Both but you can only do one, with a 216 cam I'd say you need torque converter more than you'd like the gears

The throttle response that you will get with the extra stall speed is worth it. It's like dumping the clutch in a truck with a stick shift when you are taking off.
