    Im not sure what the stock stall is but If it were mine I'd put a 2000 or 2200 stall in it.

    You can use your stock stall for now and upgrade later to something that matches up better. You won't wreck anything using it.I used the stock stall from my V6 on my 350 for 5 years before I bought a holeshot 2400.

    It depends what kind of engine you have... there is no information here to give any sort of answer. The most notable variable is compression ratio.

    Like superbee said if you run a very aggresive cam for your combination you could have trouble with it idleing high or searching for idle while stopped or comeing to a stop. Also while pulling out like he said at light throttle can bog the engine or even make the truck buck. A higher stall convertor fixes that by allowing the engine to idle higher or seach for idle while not transmitting those RPM's to the rear wheels. Also it transmits power in a range that is more in the powerband of a cammed out engine.

    when the cam starts to lope at light throttle low rpm's. not nearly as bad as a lockup converter hitting lockup tho.
