Hi there, I used to have a 2700rpm highstall in my I6 Fairlane, yes, better take of, and I could not find anything bad with it, when you just start of slowly i.e. in peak hour traffic, you would not even notice its there, its when you put your foot down a bit they stall up!

I have one in my turbo eb,its meant to be a 3000 but with the turbo's its 3500-3800 depending what gear its in.What brand is it ? mine a Jim Mock one with the lock up and its great but like sommers said you can drive it normally and wont notice the differance too...

Can you run a high stall in a stock engine and still have a drivable car?

it depends on the converter.

You really should provide all the engine and driveline specs plus a dyno sheet to someone like the converter shop. that way you'll get a converter that suits your car. other wise it's just pissing in the dark
