Torque converter stall speed

I'm very ignorant when it comes to the subject of torque converters and their stall speeds. Can anyone enlighten me in the subject??? And what stall speed converter would be ideal for a supercharged application, it would be a street/strip application and possibly around 400-450 hp/torque range

It really depends on you, some guys like big stalls on the street, others like more of a stock style. Are you familiar with how a stall converter works? I'd go look at some videos of launches on youtube and talk to a few ppl who have aftermarket stalls.

I mean for an all out 1/4 car a big RPM stall is going to be ideal, for the street... some guys simply upgrade to the Mach 1 stall converter which stalls at 2100 IIRC but most guys you see running on the street are 2800-3800.

Well I have a general idea of how a stall converter works but I guess I'll have to get more insight on the subject
