When I did my C-6 swap, the only thing they told me was that the stock torque converter had only spot welds for the fins. I was also told that there is a HD model torque converter that has full welds for the fins and the fin angle was a little steeper.
My mech said the HD torque converter is a little over-kill and mostly for racers and beefed up motors pushing high horses. He said if I was pulling large heavy loads every day, on big hills, that I would consider an HD torque converter, but he thought the stock was sufficient.
I was also told that you don't want a higher stall as most of your power in a diesel is in the lower to mid range of the rpms.
Weather or not this is all true, I don't know?
