    Precision Industries makes the stallion for the stangs. I believe the vigilante is for imports? :shrug:

    The Stallion is for Stangs and the Vigilante is for GM's Camaro and Trans Am.

    I have a PI Stallion multi-disc, lock-up, 4200 stall. Probably a little extreme for a daily driver but great for the track.

    PI all the way its a little more money but in the long run it will pay for itself being trouble free .

    www.jdsperformance.com. I don't know if he lists them on his website. You might have to call. You''ll be hard pressed to find a better price on them, though. Great place to buy from.

    I too got mine from Steve at Houston performance. Good guy to deal with. A Precision Industries Torque converter shipped to your door from Houston Performance will cost about 715 dollars shipped. Its well worth the money though.

    Anything less than a 2800rpm stall is a waste. Just my 2 cents.

    What do you guys think about a 3200 PI Stallion stall? I start to go into boost at about 3500-3700rpms.
