Default Let me know what you think of my cam/stall choice

Ok let me know what ya'll think its my daily. I dont beat on it too much, as you can see what my beat on car is. 😁 Going to cam and stall it. Want it super torquey and fun down low. Ive haven't even had it above 80mph...but i get the quickly.😂
Current mods
CAI
Long tubes w/3" exhaust to magnaflow that dump under the bed.
3.73 with locker
Hydro boost conversion
Converted to eletric fans
Corvette solenoid and shift kit

Looking at the tsp 212/218 111lsa with a circle d 2600-2800 stall. Not apposed to a 3k stall.
I drive it 50miles a day and 90% of that its in lockup.
Eventually ill probably add a Fast LSXRT and maybe some ported heads.
Open for recommendations. Thank you all!!

I'm no cam expert but you wouldn't even need that large of converter for such a mild camshaft. In fact the trailblazer I6 converter would be a cheaper solution that would work as well because it stalls higher than the factory truck converter. Something to consider.

Otherwise, that cam choice is great and makes good power. Side note here, the LSX-RT intake is not worth the money for the gains. There are better options out that are far far cheaper.

Thank you i appreciate the reply. Yea i was thinking about the TB stall as well. I can get them for right $100 at my job lol. Just read alot of people saying skip the TB and get a nice performance TC.

You can't go wrong either way. The Circle D would be a nice piece to run for sure.

Super torquey, fun down low, 90% of driving is in lockup... I would go somewhat big with the converter. 10.5 3200-3600.

I switched from a 278mm 3000(like the budget Circle D) to a 10.5 3600 and it completely changed my truck. No regrets

On a daily, I wouldn't go higher than a TB I-6. Works great in my avalanche. Had a 3200 Circle D and it would hang out around 2600RPM just to get moving. It was fun, don't get me wrong, but those $100 fillups every 5 days kinda hurt. ha

LOL.

I have the 80e version and it takes about 25-2600 rpm to get it moving but if I just mat the throttle, it just lights the tires up.
