Who are "THEY"?

Proper selection of a torque converter is determined by the horsepower, torque, cam specs, vehicle weight, rear gearing, tire diameter, type of driving (street, drags, towing, etc.). Check out the Coan and/or Hughes sites and submit info to them for suggested torque converter for your application.

Hughes

K.I.S.S.
A 2500 stall will allow the engine to rev to 2500 under full throttle until the vehicle gets moving. This allows the engine to get more into its power range. determined by its cam. A cam that makes little torque below 2500 will be pretty doggie with a stock 1600 stall converter since the car must get moving 15 mph before the engine begins to pull well.

Also a converter will "slip" and allow extra rpm if driven at a steady cruise rpm less than the rated stall speed. This is one reason that back in the 80s "lockup" torque converters were invented, to get zero slip in high gear. My factory car dropped 10% gas mileage when the lock-up switch failed.
