Somewhere in the neighborhood of 1200-1400 is what i believe.

a converter will stall at different RPM depending upon the engine. For example a stock converter from a Vega would stall at 400-600 RPM higher behind a big block then it would behind a small block. It is named a torque converter for a reason, torque changes the stall.

You can flash a converter, that is accelerate the motor with no resistance on the car (such as holding the brake), or power brake the car to increase the stall. Trucks may have a higher stall when pulling loads so the motor can get the load moving.
Each converter will act differently.

Also, typically smaller converters stall higher. Smaller converters = less rotating mass = higher stall = more heat = shorter lives.
