I have that problem in mine similar to what you just explained you punch it and the rpm's aren't high enough and it doesn't shift any lower so you just muddle along until the rpm's come up.
If you are looking towards the converter to fix the inherent ECM,TCM shortcomings, it will not. Downshifts are dictated by throttle position, vehicle speeds, torque load and rpm.Reducing the torque managment programming is the only real solution. Dont get me wrong converters would net you a reduction in 1/4 mile time if thats what your after(working within the powerband of the cam/motor) but your street driveability will suffer a little,to much stall speed and it feels like the tranny is slipping until the converters stall speed is reached. Tried to keep it simple,hope this helps.
