    Forgive me for my ignorance but I find this a great time to attempt to test what little knowledge I have.

    I think they are for automatic trannies. After you hit a particular RPM it throws the tranny into the next gear. Like I have hear of people haveing 3500RPM stall converter or a 4000RPM stall converter.

    Atleast I think that is right.... I'm probably wrong! I'll go sulk in a corner now.

    Well, if you need diagrams as well, you can look here:

    They are definitely worth buying, and even a 2100 rpm stall will make a noticable difference. Just make sure you match it to your engine, and don't forget your diff gears out back as well. It all has to function as a matched package.... Or, you can just get a manual transmission car and dump the clutch at your peak torque .

    A word of advice, buy a good quality converter and add a cooler, or you will be spending more money soon.
