    Hi everyone,

    I have an '89 Holden Commodore. So far since I bought it I have added extractors, a 2.5" mandrel bent exhaust and an SS air intake. Unfortunately after a few weeks of thrashing it around the TH700 gearbox has died and slips above about 3800rpm.

    It's getting a rebuild next week with a 2200rpm stall converter, Corvette servo, bigger bands and a stage 2 shift kit. Will the stall converter make my car a pig on the street? How careful will I have to be, can I just plant my foot in [D] from idle and it will be like dumping the clutch in a manual at 2200rpm or will this damage my new gearbox?

    Was it worth getting a stall? Or not because my engine is still internally stock for now (has roughly 180kW, it's an EFI 304ci V8 with elect ignition etc). I plan to get 4.11 LSD gears next and then a cam and chip package. I have never owned an auto car before only manual so this is all new to me.

    Thanks for the advice guys, :bowdown:
    -Dave
