Default Torque converter and nitrous question

I'm strongly considering adding a higher stall converter to my 13 5.0 rcsb. What stall would work with my mods, and at what rpm should I set my window switch to if I add a higher rpm stall? I currently spray from 3k-7k.

3C maybe? The guys at Circle D know their stuff you can give them a call and ask, they won't steer you wrong. I believe the 3C is 3400ish on the footbrake

I will call and ask. I was thinking of around 3k and maybe starting the nitrous at 4K to ensure that I have traction.

I called circle D. They recommend the 258 mm converter with a 3200 stall speed. Also informed me they will be having a 10% off deal during Black Friday.

You'd get a lot of bang for your buck with a progressive nitrous controller. You can start spraying at 2000rpm if you so choose. It flares the rpm well above the OEM stall speed. My truck was pretty new when I installed spray, and I tow a lot with it, for me a torque converter change was a no go.
