Please explain the use of a "stall convertor".

I have a question.

What is the advantage of having a stall convertor over a non-stall? Exactly, what does it do, and does it help in any way?

Thanks

I guess using my stock convertor is fine...for now. Will I be able to see a difference if I upgraded to a higher stall? The nova is used only as a weekend ride, with very minimal upgrades.

Thank you for the information. I will be installing a mild cam, (204/214), rebuilt heads, shift kit, and a locker in a few months. So I guess the best thing to do is to wait and see how it runs. It will save me a little time and money if I don't need the stall.

Thanks.

Is there a way to manually figure the stall that is currently in my car? Someone told me to stand on the brake.....while stepping on the gas. When the wheels start to break loose, is approximately the stall of the convertor. This will be hard for me, since I have manual brakes. Is there another way?
