That is not quite how converters work, they have no effect on RPM post lockup. I do think you're on the right track with seeking recommendations tho as there are more options than most guys have individually tried.


Personally I would get a Goerend G or X if staying stock turbo, if you have goals of ever upgrading the valley turbocharger then I would go with a Goerend R/DK/DL. The Limitless 1077 and 1078 are good choices as well, I just personally am a Goerend guy.


I sent you a PM as well.

The X is pretty tight. The G is a little looser than the X but still a little tighter than stock.

You may want to call Evan and see what he says. He sells and has driven all of these converters and he can discuss the coupling differences and make a good suggestion for you. It may save you a lot of research and a sea of opinions to interpret. You'll get great advice here (and you are!) but I think the 1:1 on a call would help you a lot in narrowing down what you want and what converter options fit your criterion.
