    no reason to do any valvetrain work for a stall converter.
    for a stall, youll need a shift kit, cooler and tuning.
    the BFG tires are a little less sticky and are more rear end friendly than the M/Ts

    lets say im driving along the highway doing 80 and my RPMs are at 2200.
    if i gun it, the car stalls right up to 3k (thats my stall speed).
    anytime your under you stall rpm and gun it, it will shoot right up to its rpm.

    No expert...but i think what he's trying to say is-yes, they do lock up at 45 in overdrive, but when you punch it it shifts out of overdrive; so unlocks, to a low(er) gear. so if you're cruisin at 45-50 in overdrive (locked) and punch it, it will shift down and always rev up to at least 3000+ rpms with a stall converter for a better 'punch'.

    they lock up at whatever spped the tuner sets.

    mine locks up at 43 mph. if i pin the pedal, it downshifts into second and the stall kicks in for a quick second
