i've heard of manually locking up converters at the top end to give you a little extra "kick"
it can't be all that healthy for the converter... i wouldn't think so atleast.

It will put some extra wear on the converter . May or may not help in the top I have heard both sides of that, They do make multi disk converter that are intended to do WOT lockup

Most will not hold thats why I said its bad for the converter, But as for when I have no idea since personally I have never seen any benifit from it

ive done it numerous times havent really run back to back tests but from racing on different nights im seeing 1-2 tenth gains. and about 1-2 mph. like they said tho most converters wont take a wot lockup.
