Re: Please explain the use of a "stall convertor".

All torque convertors have a stall, it keeps the engine from stalling when stopped. Stock the stall speeds are low around 800rpm. Higher stalls are used to get the engine up in rpms before putting full torque to the driveline. Matching stall speeds to engine characteristics gives good launch from the line without bogging until RPM's get into power band. That is an overview, someone else will have to jump in with more specific info. I don't have one in my Nova :)
