        I have a 3200 Circle D torque converter in my G8.
        You lose a little driveability with it as it takes a little more pedal to get the car moving.
        The stock torque converter flashes around 1800 rpms.
        Once I nail it though, the torque is there. It also holds the rpms during shifts which is close to my peak torque.
        Pick a stall that is close to your peak torque.

          I was looking into putting a torque convertor into my G6 before. I did alot of research, on a stock engine 90% of the time its pointless. First like mentioned you lose drivablility, 2nd you MPG will go down, next you should really install an aftermarket tranny cooler becuase of the incressed heat on your tranny.

          What they are mostly for is engine mods like a cam that incresses your torque maybe to a higher RPM band because you have a high end cam. Depending where the LS2 generages most of its torque you might be jumping a tad over that band. One of my friends that has a G8 GT and is on one of the G8 boards told me that a guy over there was pist because he put too big of a torque convertor on his competely stock engine and he lost I think he said .5 off of his 0-60 times off the line. So that means he took a G8 GT from 0-60 in 5.3 seconds to 5.8 seconds, its now slower then a stock GP GXP off the line.

          Next thing is if you have issues like I do being FWD and the 3900 having so much torque in the low RPMs I have issues with traction esp with TC off, that problem will be magnified alot. So you do a stall converter need to make sure your tires are up to the traction also or you might want to upgrade your tires too.
