I just had my Circle D 3k stall put in and I was wondering is it normal to have to give a lot more in the pedal in order to move out. I set my Aeroforce to monitor throttle % and I see that I need to go about 50% or above throttle for it to take off nicely. I see the difference at WOT but in just spirited takeoffs It feels like the truck needs a lot more over what the stock vert needed. I also installed headers at the same time as the vert. Just like to hear from other with this convert. Thanks

So your saying it takes higher rpms to get the truck moving correct? If so that's what a stall converter does.

It will take you more throttle to get the truck moving, since a stall converter has more time to slip since the engine and transmission's input shaft won't be spinning at the same speed until 3k rpm.

You may have lost some low end torque with the headers also.

give it a week or two, you won't notice it as much. until you drive something without a higher stall.

thats why there are stall speed choices. Maybe you should have gone with a lower stall.

Thanks for all the replies guys. I never had a converter before so sorry if the question was dumb. Anyway the converter over all is great. I think ill be doing cam and heads in the near future also.
