What stall

I have a 1968 mustang with an 87 5.0 swapped into it. I want to keep it as a daily driver for the most part. Its about a mild street car. I want it to have a decent bit of speed but don't want it to just completely destroy my mileage (even though it isn't that great to begin with). What stall would yall recommend for when I put my AOD in

It all depends on your Cam and what RPMS it is best at. I had a 460 lift 280 duration in a F150 I put a 2000 RPM stall converter in it and it was a kick in the pants when wanted but a nice DD.

I have a 2000 stall in my 68 289 with an edelbrock performer cam anymore than that it wouldn't be streetable but it jumps off the line now compared to the stock converter

Me and my dad were thinking 2000 would be best for it to still be street able but I kept reading everywhere that people said Atleast 2500 or more so I just figured I would ask. I've got a little more than a mild cam but it's not ridiculous so I'll go with the 2000. Thanks!

Why don't you upgrade to an 8.8?

Don't you have to narrow the 8.8 for it to fit?

It depends which one you get. I got the explorer which is the easiest to make fit. You just have to move the spring perches, get a driveshaft adapter, and a few brake line adapters. The explorer is only about 1 inch longer. So depends on your wheel setup too.

Damn... I have 255s that are almost past the quarter, I'll just shop around for a 8" carrier. My uncle offered to lend me an 8.8 out if his gt500 but I don't think he knows I would have to cut it

It's a 900+ hp road racing car with wide open headers that he still runs around on the street, it'll spin Hoosier slicks clean through 4th. It's a blast
