Re: 200-4R and Non-Lockup Converter Ok?
I've always done them with 4th gear lockup and lived with the lugging, or manually chosen 3rd gear if speed warranted it to keep it from hunting. Houston has a lot of highways, so most of the time, it goes 3-4 and you continue to accel and there is no lugging. I'd be interested as well, I have a 2004R on deck for my '68 Caprice and would consider a non lockup based on Jake's recommendations.
