My truck seems to stall to above 2000 rpms when power braking. Is this normal? My duramax and Powerstroke wouldn't stall that high before spinning the tires. Is it running through the converter? It's only got a PPE on it. I'm new to the dodge tranny's so I need any advice I can get

Sounds like the inefficient converter of the dodge. My dtt will only go to 1700 or so before the tires break loose.

Does it stall or fall flat on it's face :D
When you pin the brake and hammer down on the pedal, it just falls flat on its face. Ease off on the brakes a little and slowly give it some. Let the turbo start to sing. As the tires start to spin, hit the brake pedal. It will spin forever :lol3: To get the feel of it, do it on sand or a little wet pavement, you'll get the feeling on the pedal control. The auto's have some kind of torque management thingy going on when stock.

I know how to build boost....I slowly creep on it.....I'm just wondering if that is normal for it to actually stall that high. Also, I'm running a PPE Excellerator on Extreme. What things do I need to do to help the trans hold up?

A new converter and valve body would do wonders for it. It's not unusual for a dodge tranny to stall that high.

Stock TC has a stall speed of 2200 rpms. With no wheel speed ECU limits rpm to 2100.

As far a saving the trans, shift kit immediately or its toast. Billet input, billet cover lower stall TC, front band strut, billet servo cover and you will be ok to about 600 HP if you don't flog it too hard.

If you want to run it hard and be relatively safe, then just figure $5k to $7k for a full billet transmission and you will still be able to break one of them.
