    My 3,500 +/- ACC converter flashed 4,100 with the 383 and 5,000 with the 408.

    With my PTC 4500 it would stall to 5k in my old setup. We will see next weekend. I leave at 3000 on a two step though. car can't handle 5000 launch.

    There is never too much stall speed, only not enough peak engine RPM.

    Or to put it another (better) way, one of my customer's runs a 565 BBC that sees a 175 big shot kit from time to time. Stall speed (w/o 2 step activated) is 6200, there doesn't seem to be any operational issues. Shift point is in the 7500 area.
