A higher stall on a DD will cause a lot more heat to be generated in the TC because it's not locked up and working at its peak efficiency. A high stall can also cause a decrease in your MPGs if you have it too high because you'll continually be spinning the TC's impeller faster than the turbine, wasting engine power to fluid losses and heat instead of spinning the turbine side.

Now, if you plan to do more track time or spend time at or above 3000 rpm, then I'd say go for it, otherwise it might be better to stay with the 2400 or go as high as 2800 for a DD.

If you care to do some reading, Banks has a great article on TCs.
Thanks for the read
