Higher stall torque converter?

A buddy of mine was telling me that I should do a higher stall torque converter. He was telling me that it's sort of like gears, but you lose power on the dyno. Anyway, was wondering if anyone has done it and what the pros and cons of it were. Also, for those who have had one installed, how much did it cost you for install and the torque converter it's self?

I test drove one with a high stall converter installed... I found it super annoying to drive. I would not want my car to drive like that. It's great if you are interested in squeeling your tires, and maybe it has some positive results on the strip or track, but as a daily driver, I would hate it.

Pros and cons from my short experience:

Pros:
fun
tire spinning good time

cons:
annoying slipping feel
unresposive low acceleration while trying to drive with traffic
constant over revving to barely speed up.
simply annoying when city and traffic driving

It's a torque multiplier. Probably not worth the cost to increase the 500 or so added rpm. Spend the same cash on a 100 shot and tune.

I was considering 100 shot, but I don't know, to me nitrous doesn't seem safe.

Perfectly safe if you do your research and do things the right way. The right way isn't necessarily the cheapest way though.

How much do you think it would cost to do it the right way?

Hey Shane !!!!

From where you live you can drive up to Steeda and see how much to put it in. Like Joey M91 said.
