Torque Converter question

So I am planning on ordering a AGP L2R turbo in the next month or 2, and I was wondering if anyone thinks I would need a high stall TC? The rest of my mods are in my sig. I honestly don't know that much about TC's. Anyone car to share some benifits from one? Thanks.

If you plan on getting HKS cams you will. I have a FPT28 and my full spool time went from 2800rpm to 3400rpm with the cams. And now even with my dunrite high stall TC I have issues getting to spool quickly. If I had to do it over again I'd get something with a 3500rpm stall. A high stall TC brings your stall speed from stock 2100rpm to 2700-3000rpm stall on the upgraded ones. While power braking I can reach about 3500rpm and have gotten it to 4000rpm but with no gains really ones past 3500. Personally when I had the stock cams it didn't help my 60fts at all. I got a 1.81 60ft on the stock TC as well as the upgraded one. Maybe it would have helped people with 16Gs where there was a bit more lag then in my turbo.

If you want an L2R and Cams I'd want something with at least 3500rpm stall if they even make it. But otherwise I think you'll have trouble spooling that turbo up. If you do decide to run the stock cams you might just be able to get away with it. But I don't think It'd be good enough for real good 60fts.

Hey V8, I'm in the same boat as you. I'm interested in the L2R as well. I already have the HKS Cams, 264i/272e but have yet to install them. Been reading a lot of threads recently and it's sort of swaying my decision on putting them in. I have had my TC upgraded and it is a must w/ any turbo upgrade. I dropped a little over.70 off my 1/4 w/ that and the valve body upgrade. I also have a PTS kit installed. Take a look at that too. Look at Level10 or Protorque. Good Luck!!
