from what I've heard locking the converter you are asking to grenade it, thats why I opted to leave it unlocked....I thought this was the main reason we should not be shifting into 4th at WOT, and why the pcms prevent this.
The pull is from 110-176km/h and goes from about 5000-6000 rpm.
I'll post the graph in a few minutes...the guy smoothed the graph so it shows about 3 less hp and tq than what was actually recorded.
the torque isnt up much from what I think most guys dyno at stock...but it's very linear...
