Default What torque converter with rear 4.10 gears

Ok guys, I know that the RT models are supposed to have a slightly more aggressive torque converter than the standard models, does anyone know how much more aggressive it is, would it be worth it? But first let me explain. I have to drive a bit in the mountain areas surrounding las vegas, and when I have done a torque converter before, it made the vehicle drive really poorly in the hills, or I could down shift and drive at 3000rpms, or more, constantly to keep the transmission from shifting back and forth. I had a 2800 stall before, and it would not drive the vehicle correctly up hills at anything below 3000rpm, it would slip, then down shift and then up shift then down, so on so on.

This was in a corvette. I loved the performance all around with the converter, just bad ass, but I don't want to give up my normal drivability in the mountains either. I am putting 4.10 gears in soon, and wanted to do a converter at the same time. I want improved performance, and know that a 2600 to 3000 stall would be great, but would mess up the drivability for what I am looking for. I know also that I will be giving up a huge increase, but I still want an improvement over stock.

Anyone know the stall speed of the stock RT unit, or about how much it would cost?
