you do understand the torque converter transfers power from the engine to the trans via the input shaft of the trans?
The torque converter is spinning as the engine runs.
As mentioned a higher stall rated converter will slightly soften engagement depending on the stall ratings. A 4500 stall converter would soften up shifts and engagement more than a 2500 stall converter would.
