I did an FTI 3600. Two words after I mashed the go pedal for the first time: Underwear swap.

Depends on your future plans....what mods are you planning on doing later, particularly what cam do you plan to run, that will tell all......

Im also running a 5.3 with a 2004r transmission and a 12 bolt with 3.08 detroit tru-trac rearend gear. Transmission guy set me up with a custom 10" converter to save on weight with a 2400 rpm stall. Havn't fired it yet but soon:yes:

Which FTI 3600 stall STR converter did you go with on that FTI 3600? There are two. The 6082 or the 0086?
