Seems like high gear clutches is what weres most . I am hoping to have around 600 hp 466 with a c4 tci manual valve body and didnt want to break small slicks loose in second and the R seem to help the 3rd gear shift better. I know a R has the same apply piston as a A servo but somehow it help third gear shift. Do you think second gear band wll live with a R servo? Thanks,,ED

what type of band material? How does the shift feel? More to it than a tire barkin' shift. I use a billet sevo cover equal to an H and a big heavy spring for the return. What is it for direct frictions and steels?

R servo

Never had a poor shift or band getting burned with a B/W replacement one. With smallblock with a ton of high 6s in 1/8 and few thousand miles before inspections. That was with a A servo and shift kit. With manual V/B really firmed second even more. Added a H later on and really didnt notice much change on second . I am not worried about just a chirp since smallblock did more than that going into second. It was like a short growl. Just feel with bb being geared higher ,shifts will be more demanding and third the most. Always did alot of street driving and heard kevlar wasnt best for street. What band do i need thats good for street? Thanks,,,Ed

I use the kevlar and they always look new when I pull them out. Not sure how the street driving would affect it, prolly none at all.

converter

I had a question that you might shed some light on. Around here everyone runs a ATI, seems to be one of the cheapest converter that works good at{Torque multiplying}. One complaint i have had and heard alot before is they seem tighter and less likely to flash good exspecially if everthing isnt perfect. Not meaning tune, but motor parts. I decided to go about a point higher in compression and heads should flow 20 or more cfm higher with about the same cc port. Shouldnt both of these help converter flash? I not sure how the head flow thing works but my chevy friend said it be better to say less then more, Hope i get close,,,Ed

just checking. The to tight thing might be a deal for them to answer, personaly I read a lot of posts about their missing the set up. (not here) Its hard to say what engine changes will afect converter characteristics and how without doing some good ol track tunning.
