Torque Converter for turbo car?

Just wondering how important a higher stall torque converter is for a turbo'd car. I know the basic concept behind one is to get the engine up into the power band for your camshaft quicker but with a turbo would it make that big a difference? I just bough a turbo 5.0 with a 3000 rpm stall and just can't get used to it. The car is mostly a weekend car with a few highway trips and the track 4-5 times a year. So I guess my real question is how bad would it hurt performace to switch back to a stock torque converter? Thanks.

What's the problem with it? What can't you get use to?
My old PTC 9.5" stalled to 4400rpm on the t-brake but drove like a stocker in normal driving situations.
