Just ordered a 2800 to 3000 stall torque converter for my 06 5.7 r/t. I have cam and head work done i upgraded the rear gear to a 3.06 getrag. My 1/4 mile times are around 13.3's I'm not regular drag racer but my times are disappointing. Will a torque converter get it into the 12s?

Sorry, I was referring to HemiLonestar's comment. I know FTI is a popular choice and I have seen many run anywhere from 3200 all the way up to 3500 stall. I was curious what brand and stall gave 7 tenths drop.....that's a lot!

On a side note, how are you liking your stall?

It's taking some getting use to. Never had any type of stall converter. But starting to like it. It don't to drop as bad in the rpms when shifting

I had a Circle D 2800 in my truck; literally changed the nature of the vehicle.

You may need to just practice, and make sure everything works together ( what rpm is your cam for? Are you running in the right rpm ) you did not mention a tuner, that would help, cam and head work will pump a lot more air you may need large injectors, sounds like a lot of work,,, but you could take to a dyno tuner it would take all the guest work out
