When modifications to the engine have moved the torque curve upward in the rpm band to where the low stall speed of the stock convertor is hindering accelleration. Think of the convertor as a liquid clutch. If you want to accellerate hard you'll bring the rpms higher before releleasing the clutch. As you modify the engine and the torque peak moves the clutch engagement must move also. So it goes with a convertor.
