It can cause an overheat condition. It should not feel like not connected. What size stall is it?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
It's a 3500 stall converter and it feels like it's attached to a rubber band if that makes sense, it feels as if it's not grabbing all the way almost as if it's slipping I'm not sure how to explain
Expert:  Tool Hut replied 5 months ago.

If you put the vehicle on drive and power brake it does the RPM go to 3500 before it moves? When it does move does it feel solid or slipping? Depending on engine you may be able to exceed the 3500 but the trans should feel solid.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
No it hits 3500 and pretty much launches and drives solid in that aspect, it's just a mild pulling away from lights and stop signs that it feels like it's being held back, I also have a decent cam and aluminum heads and a few other things so I know that this thing should run friggin hard this is the first time working with this higher in the stall converter so I'm a little bit concerned
Expert:  Tool Hut replied 5 months ago.

It sounds like you are OK. The high stalls will cause over heating so I suggest an external cooler.

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I don't want to sound rude but you really didn't help me, I have external cooler I've done all that homework, I was hoping for something else that's all
Expert:  Tool Hut replied 5 months ago.
