Would love to help you spec one out....

I think you will really appreciate the multi, gives you a lot more choices. WOT lock up on the dyno, track or highway pulls. We have a lot of new upgrades on the clutches to help them survive and not rattle.

I've done several triple disc lock-ups for the higher power cars who want to use the 4l80e but for a bullet proof converter I'd prefer to swap it to non lock.

How fast is the car at the track or how much power does it make?
