Suncoast stage 3, 1056(might be different for lifted trucks) and C3 clutch oiler. That combo, if built right, will take anythintg a stock motor will throw at it, and the kit is proven, im kinda skeptical about these "other" kits.. :thumbsup
also a great kit if you plan on keeping the power down, but if you plan on pulling or drag racing, your going to get bit.

C3 oiler is also a must, good call brian

Suncoast makes their own converters,
1054, 1056, 1057, 1058, and 1055

tc not tq for future reference.

Yes suncoast makes their own they have the following

1054
1055
1056
1057
1058

The 1054 is super tight, the 1058 is a little looser and set up for a stock sized turbo or a little larger. 1056 is $200 cheaper than the rest. 1055 is what I run and is extremely loose, meant for big turbo pulling trucks. 1057 was a great all around converter but I think your considered lucky if you can get your hands on one these days, could be wrong though.

There is also the Precision ML converter which is a very good option.

Hey Brian, would I have to drop my trans to install the C3 oiler? I remember Mike saying you dont have to crack it open...but not saying if you have to R&I it.
