Stall size

Anyone using a 3800-4k stall in their g8? I currently have a 3200 yank but I keep wanting a bigger stall.

And here I was, asking a buddy just last night if he thought a 3200 too big. Is this going on a DD?

Its not a DD, more of a weekend warrior. However, it could very easily be a DD. Most people don't even know its stalled.

My old Trans Am had a yank 3600ss and I always wanted to re-stall it to the 4000ss.

I also have a 3200 and drive it pretty much daily. MPG didn't take that much of a hit and it doesn't really affect my normal driving style either.

I'm really surprised nobody has info on larger stalls for the g8s.

I've dealt with MANY different stall speeds and converters in 6l80/90s. I wouldn't go any higher than a tight 3600, or a loose 3200. The biggest challenge I've seen for a DD 6l80/90 car is trying to keep the transmission cool enough to where it won't kill itself with high transmission temps. You can probably get away with a loose 3600 in a race car, but that's it. I would stay away from a loose 3600 or 4000 in a DD G8. You're going to lose reliability, and might lose trap speed if you don't buy a multi disk converter that you can lock up.

Keep your stalls at 2800-3200 in you daily driver 6l80/90. You'll be much happier. If you feel like you need more power down low, get some 3.29s, or a cam with a lower power curve.

Ok thanks I have a small enough cam for the stock converter but you can tell it would be happier with a stall and I also have a 3.45 Camaro diff to put in. Still stay in the 2800-3200 range? I’m not to savvy on auto cars I’ve always had manuals so it’s pretty new to me.

With the engine having a smaller cam, installing a higher stall is only going to shorten your power band. Unless you have a multi disk converter where you can lock it up, and extend your gear.

I run a 4500 speed triple disc in the car. Temps stay under 200f. It's borderline not street able, but doable. It gets driven to work here and there but not a DD at all.
