This is the theoretic point where the torque converter will stop the engine from revving any higher without the car moving(Transmission turning). The number is more of a reference than a true number in most cases as a 3000 rpm stall will work different behind a small block VS a big block and will be different in a light car VS a heavy car.
In a T-Bucket the car is so light that if you don't raise the stock stall speed you will need to stand hard on the brakes at a light to keep the car from moving.
I have a 2400 in my t-bucket and it made it a lot easier to control at the traffic lights.
Stock stall is around 1100-1200 I believe.
