With 3.15 gears you'd be pretty well off with a 3600 stall converter. Circle D is one of the only companies (if not the only) making converters for the 6r80 transmissions. I'd give them a call and see what they have to say for sure

3600 is a little rediculous for a street driver, but whatever.

The OP did ask about what's best for getting off the line, never asked about driveability.

Give us some insight. I'm not too knowledgable on stall converters, don't just give us a one liner lol

I would never go less than a 3000 if you're going to do it. 3600 sounds pretty good to me, that's what I'd get if I get around to putting one in.

I have to agree, the 5.0 really comes to life past 3000rpms.

I sent a message to Circle D, on Friday, as I am interested in doing this next for my car. Will see what is recommended.

Rather than asking this question on a public forum I would contact Circle D and get their recommendation. And the fastest N/A autos are running a converter with 3.31's.
