A high-stall is a modified torque convertor. To get one you simply buy a histall convertor and replace your stock torque convertor with it. You have to match the histall to your cam and your diff ratio. Generally speaking most street cars run around a 2500rpm histall and 3.5 gears.
I've run around on the street with a 3500rpm histall and 4.11's without issues. I now run a 4500rpm histall with the 4.11's though. I run a largish camshaft.
Histall convertors have nothing to do with shift kits. They are totally different parts.
