Post High Stall T/C?

Ill give you the skinny:

I burnt up my trans around 25k miles ago and had it rebuilt. The shop I brought it to told me they put a "heavy duty" torque converter in when they found out I was using a programmer. I get the truck back and it just seems different, like it winds up higher to take off at a light or while towing. I thought they put a gasser converter in they said "No, no, no its for a diesel, its a heave duty Ford t/c, we use them in commercial trucks...". Ooook

Fast forward to today. I've sort of gotten used to the feeling now but I have a question for you guys:
Has anyone ever gotten a t/c that is higher stall on a diesel truck? And is this better or worse for towing and daily driving?

I still don't like the way it feels, I feel like I'm out of powerband all the time, but it moves great when cold(fluid is still thick?). I don't have any details as to the make or construction of the one that is in there now, and I dream of a BTS unit, but money's tight.

right after I got my truck the trans went and I took it to the local shop (not knowing any better) and they rebuilt it with heavy duty parts and a new super TC. they told me they used a HD TC that has a higher stall on it and its better for towing. i just said ok, build it! so $2500 later I leave the shop and sure felt it the first time I took off, it lets the motor get a little higher then it use to. like you, I am just use to it. Who knows if this trans will last or not. I was in a hurry and needed it to work and did not know any better at the time. Or I would have gotten a BTS trans and never worried about it again!

My transmission builder, John Wood, actually put a lower stall then the stock ealry99 TC. I don't see the need for a higher RPM stall speed, but that is just me.

I have a 2400 stall fixin to go in shortly. The stock stall will not let me spool off the line in 4 low. This way I can acheive some boost before I leave the line.

I can hit 46psi of boost at 2100rpm but I am not north of 500hp.
