Torque Converter/ Stall?

So I have friends saying I should install a torque converter on my 2011 Mustang V6. My car is full bolt on with 3.73 gears, has someone installed in there v6? Is it worth it? how much is fuel economy worsened? I'm having trouble finding one.

I'm not sure if anyone has made one for the 3.7 V6s yet? At least I haven't seen any either.

Smokin Stanley has, not sure if he's on this forum or not. But he had a full bolt on auto/tune/tires/convertor. Last time slip he had was a 12.6 1/4 I think before his car got smashed in an accident.

I believe there are 2 other also with aftermarket convertors, not sure of the status of either.

Make sure you get one with a flash stall and heavy duty clutches etc. and you wont lose too bad on the gas from the converter just driving it easy around town. I would go with a 2,500 to 3,000 RPM flash stall so you can launch it at the track but still be able to ease into the gas at stop lights and not take lurch forward. Spend the money on a good one or it will drive like a race car on the street. Call and let the tech department at reputable brands like Precision Industries, TCI (gets mixed reviews but I like them)

And to add to this here is a great explanation for you if you are not sure of what the terminology means etc.

What does a high stall converter do?

Go with a circle d converter. Make it a 3500-4000 stall. Get some drag radials. Run in good air, with a full exhaust and tune, and you should be in the 12's easy.
