I found it to be much better to lower the stall on the converter than to go direct.If you build your converter to stall at about 900 ,and use a smaller than stock case for the converter it will work better in a street stock that is really turning less horsepower than say a latemodel or something. A Torque converter will actually multiply the torque at the crankshaft,so that the power going into the trans will be greater than that comming out of the motor.It is'nt much but every little bit helps me.

Most any of your tranny shops can build any converter to your specs. The guy who builds mine cuts them open,puts new bearings and adjust the clearances between the fins to make it stall where ever I want it to.I can give you his name and number if you need it he has built alot of trannys for racing and he is extremely reasonable.
