8.1 th400 torque converter questions

Im putting a 8.1L behind a th400 in my jeep and im looking for a torque converter. My tranny guy told me about the allison 545 TC would fit the th400 and now im trynig to find out the stall. The stall ratio is 1.68 to 1.72 and i dont know what that means. Im looking for a lower stall than normal to utilize the torque of the big block. i may end up going to oreileys and pick up a stock tc.

I heard it's like 1200. For that reason I didn't get it. Just don't remember the number anymore.

Just run a 168 tooth old school internal balanced flywheel and bolt right up. Then run any torque converter you want made for the turbo 400. Im running the same setup with a TH350
