would a supercharged automatic car run better with the lockup converter or a non locking converter?could you just disable the lockingup in the stock converter and drive it on the street with out any problems?

If you don't mind getting less MPG and having the trans run a little hotter, the torque converter lock up can easily be disabled in the tune.

Because the torque converter is always slipping and that generates heat.

You don't want to do that. Only reason to have a non-lockup converter is if you're going to be in the 1000+ hp range where a two piece input shaft is too weak.
