I have one waiting in the wings so to speak.

But have *NOT YET* installed it.

No thanks to the pandemic it's collecting dust atm, while my SHO's under going it's own rebuild.

Stock stall, higher efficiency unlocked from billet stator, brazed fins for durability, 20% more lockup clutch area with a higher energy material.  Basically what the factory should have done....LOL

At what power levels would you suggest this upgrade be performed?

I picked up one, after my first trans got swapped (ford esp) the second unit had a bad TC, so not wanting to have to do it myself, I chatted with the tech and he swapped it in, And Matt got a brand new unit to update.  This has had more control over shutter during TC lockup and high gear roll in boost, both others had with this, and also my last flex had this issue as well.

I wasn't aware it was a stock stall.  That is a good thing as that makes more appealing to the daily drivers as well.
