What are the disadvantages of a high stall converter?

Also, acceleration will be poor. It is common for those who ‘think’ their car is big and bad, have poor times on the track because of gears being too tall, carbs being too large, and low stalls. At any time when higher stall converters are installed, you should ensure an external tranny cooler of some type is used.

How much does stall speed affect transmission performance?

Plus, the higher the stall speed, the more heat the converter will make with hydraulic fluid inside of the converter. Normally a high stall converter will be able to make enough heat to destroy a transmission if you are holding the line too long at full RPM if the stall speed is higher than 3500RPM.
