    No slipping with a lockup. 1:1 ratio

    If you have a final drive rpm of 1600 or 1800 and you have a 2000 rpm stall...you tell me!
    A final drive rpm above 2000 would be required with a 2000rpm stall for your pressures to stay in the proper operating range.
    Thanks for the link, although it doesn't talk about this loss of pressure at a low rpm.
    Good luck with all that!

    What kind of an engine has a top RPM of 1600 or 1800???

    We aren't talking about final drive here, the torque converter is on the engine.

    .....final drive rpm, not top rpm
    At highway speeds 90kph, the rpm of my truck is 1600rpm in od. This what I mean by final drive rpm.
    A 2000 stall converter would slip...it barely couples in the stock configuration.

    I have a 2000 stall in my Dodge 2500, 5.9, 24 valve diesel and it functions quite well. I move 26000 lbs with no slippage.
