Question Torque Converters - your experiences

Can someone please describe the difference in feel of a higher stall speed converter, for example 2800 vs. stock. Most of my driving is done around town in a vorteched 2000 gt auto which puts out just under 400 foot pounds at the flywheel.

I had a 89 vortech blown 5.0 with an AOD. The difference, is awesome. next to a blower, and gears, it's one of the biggest seat of the pants feeling. I went with the nonlockup 2800rpm stall. It was awesome. It tachs up to about 1800 then starts to gentally move and then climbs to about 2500~2800 rpms, under mild throttle and just stays there through the 1-2 shift, and also the 2-3 shift.
