Torque conv, stall-flash,low pull rpm from stop.

Will a 2500 flash, 2100 stall, still pull away from stop at low rpm(1000)or less?
450-500hpish, 401, pulls Hard from 2-2500rpm-6000rpm , 727, 3:55 gear, 4800lb pickup.
Trying to buy a off the shelf budget TC.
Don't want to be slipping at 2000rpm! (45-50mph).
I know this subject has benn beat up!
Looking for some real world experience.
Thanks (building a jr version of farm truck?).
It will be quicker than it looks!

Hughes Performance Street Master Torque Converters GM25HD
Torque Converter, Street Master, 2,500 rpm Flash Stall, Heavy-duty Sprag, Chevy, TH350, TH400

I have this converter. On the foot brake(brakes suck) I can hold it to 2,200 rpm. I bought it to help alleviate having to set the idle up a little and the Wagon jumping forward when putting in gear. Think I might have 375HP. What you are worried about, I have not noticed with this converter. I my opinion, this is a very mild converter.

i ran a 3500 rpm stall in my low rider chevy. at the time of install it still had the I6 rear gears in it. 2.94 or something. it was in stall rolling 55-60 mph. i could hit a hill and lose 10 mph or more and rpm would remain unchanged.


it would not drag you thru a light at idle. i think a 2100 will still require some brake pedal to prevent creep in drive.

I'll check into Hughes!
The 1 that's in it now(p.o. install?), I can power brake to 1800rpm, flash unknown?
It won't start to move truck until bout 1000rpm.(mild 360 ,300hp ish).
He had local b-grade shop rebuild tranny the year before I got it.(had receipt).
I can't imagen they used anything but stock?
It almost feels like a RV TC? With trailer behind it spins up 12-1400rpm before moving.
I may just chance it with the big motor

the stall speed goes up as horsepower is increased. or weight. any rated stall speed is the speed for whatever power/weight baseline it was rated at.



put a four cylinder dodge caravan converter behind a 502 chev and see what it stalls at. lol.


cruising speed will have about the same behavior,your car will require the same amount of power to rioll down the highway regardless of motor or tune. when you punch it it will stall/slip a little higher in the rpm.
