    A stall and cam should work with one another. You want the stall to put you in the cam's power band. A 3500 stall is a great stall for DD.

    I believe the stock convertor is 1800, I am not positive on that though. If you do a lot of in town driving the bigger convertor will reduce your MPG to 15/16 MPG probably. You will still get good MPG on the highway though because the convertor will lock up at a certain speed and your RPMs then drop.

    That's ok, as long as go 3000-3600 range, and if you still have stock gears(3.23's), you'll be fine. The only thing you will notice is that it will take a few more rpm's to get rolling from a stop. A stall is a must if you do a cam.

    I would look into swapping for a th350 or th400 if you want a trans brake.
