Thank You
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.

Some people are like Slinkies... Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
