Maybe I am confused, because I can't make sense of this.
I think you are asking if a tuner will lock the converter while the truck is stationary in park, in high idle. The answer would be no, it can't.
The converter is there to allow your engine to run while the truck is stopped. Kind of like a clutch on a manual transmission car. Locking the converter on a non-moving vehicle will act like releasing the clutch on a non-moving vehicle with the transmission in gear.
In a truck without a PTO, the power goes into the transmission, and that power is either sent out the back to the drive wheels, or is absorbed into the transmission fluid (as heat) through the converter (Or some combination of both).
If you tried to lock the converter with the wheels stationary, the converter would attempt to send all power out the back of the transmission where it would find locked wheels (or a parking prawl) and the engine would stall.
If I misunderstood what you were asking, disregard. If you need more detail or explanation, I'd be glad to help.
I can't imagine we'd be welcome at hooters very long if there was a bunch of half drunk guys in the back sitting around whistling and humming trying to make the perfect 7.3 turbo noise...
