Not that a stall wouldn't help, but it's not as necessary with a 6 speed auto and gobs of torque from the engine.

It's difficult to imagine this car not picking up at least .3 with the stall... and nothing else. I realize it's not a simple procedure, but I think the heavyweight ZL1 would really shine with the stall to take advantage of lsa torque.

Who on this forum has seen a .5 improvement from a converter on a 6L80 /6L90?
Please come forward.

I have a 3000 stall converter that flat woke up the acceleration when stock.Now that ADM has worked his magic on my ZL1 (750/800hp),i can at 45mph cruise,nail the throttle and leave 2 patches of rubber 20' long.
I have not run it at the strip yet even though i do have drag radials and 6" fronts that i havent tried yet.The spool up and acceleration is incredable.
