    There were about 80 different converters for these trucks (no, I'm not kidding) and a more powerful engine will make the same converter stall higher.

    According to B&M the stock stall speed is 1200.

    That might have been for the one they tested, because I can assure you GM used so many converters there is no way they were all 1200. :)

    hmm alright, i think the 1600 stall speed is looking good, i just dont want the sudden jerking of a high end torque converter, im guessing 1600 is too low for it to jerk at all. thanks guys!

    That sounds a lot lower than any of mine have been.
