View Full Version : circle d stall
02-07-2012, 08:41 AM
Looking at my options for a circle d stall, wanna either go with the 3200, or arouthnd a 3600... going in a 08stall 5.3 ext, 4 speed. The prob im having making my decision is tht, the guy at circle d, told me the 32003200 id def dd friendly with no defects. But on the other hand the 3600 had a smaller lock up clutch.... id like to be able to still pull my fourwheeler and lil weeler trailer.. don't have alot of time to reasearch this so input would be awsome... I def don't drive the trk everyday but would love to be able to if I needed to

3200 RPM stall is pretty high for a daily driver, especially if your planning to tow on occassion with it. why are you wanting to install this? it wont increase power or anything, its just similar to "dumping the clutch" at that RPM, the converter locks up and grabs hard so anything from idle - 3100 RPM there's lots of slippage, creating a ton of heat and heat tends to murder transmissions in a hurry. do you have a cam or intake or heads that are designed around that rpm range?

3200 is high for a daily but i helped a friend in stall a 3200 circle d in his 2000 rclb 1500 5.3 4 speed also and it actually flashed at like 3500-3600 and he daily's his no problem to date. Although we did build a stout 60e for him but he load that truck down with a lot of weight and get on the highway with no problem.
Remember with having a stall it will raise trans temp so you wanna be careful towing on those hot summer days. I'd recommend a tranny cooler and temp gauge just to be safe. Also read that Amsoil tranny fluid can keep your temps 10% lower and give you better fuel mileage, plus its extended mile oil change so you cant argue with any of that. But I'd recommend the 3200 it flashs 3600 like you want but you can still use your truck like a truck.
Hope this helps!

Thanks alot! And ill never have another truck without a stall convertor, its the best mod to me... and im going to get the stall I want and work specs around tht, ima get a cooler even if I don't get any stall, lower tranny temp helps alot, and my tranny build builds a great 60 so im comfy with tht, I just worried bout the stall itself, 3200 has better lock up clutches, 3600 doesn't have as good.. I was just worried bout the sstall, and I don't really dd the trk just don't wanna not be able to...every bit of expierenced help yal give is awsome!

The 3200 will work great and isn't too much for a daily driver. It is on the edge but a 3200 will behave 90% like a stock stall under normal driving and really open up with some skinny pedal. If you put a larger cooler on it you will be able to tow with out an issue. The 3600 is a bit on the high side for daily driving and towing.

I daily drove a Precision Industries 3600 for 2 years. Flashed to around 3800 when the tires held it. I would do it again no problem. Never got hot on me.
I never towed with it but I did haul **** in the bed. Dirt bikes, golf carts, etc. Gave me no problems.
A friend of mine just got a Circle D 2C(32-3400) today, we are putting it in his 07 ecsb Z71. Its stock other than exhaust and a tune, and 305/55/20s.
it wont increase power or anything, its just similar to "dumping the clutch" at that RPM, the converter locks up and grabs hard so anything from idle - 3100 RPM there's lots of slippage, creating a ton of heat and heat tends to murder transmissions in a hurry. do you have a cam or intake or heads that are designed around that rpm range?
Its not anything like a manual. It doesnt lock when you hit the throttle, it will lock at cruise, just like a stock one.
It will make the truck a lot quicker. A stock 5.3 needs that much converter.
