Are you sure? 3000 seems quite high for a stock vehicle...

Yep... ~3000 for a GT and ~2250 for a GTP. I'm sure that a Bonneville'* stall is higher then 1800.

A stall speeds will also vary depending on torque output of your motor as well as gear ratios, vehicle weight, and other factors. Lower stall speeds will run cooler, get better fuel economy, and will be easier to launch with. Higher stalls give lower 60 potential but will rob more upper rpm HP.

Yeah, but 3000 RPMs is getting into racing stalls...

dbtk2 also maintains that the GP GT converter stalls at 3000 from the factory. The ZZP website also says something about this in the description of their 3250rpm converter.
