Would torsional strain be negative if you were moving from a less stable conformation to a more stable one?

The torsional strain would not be negative, but it would decrease in value as you move to a more stable conformation. I'm not entirely sure though but that's what I think.

I'm pretty sure that torsional strain can never be negative and can only be as low as 0 (when there is no strain).

Is it possible to have negative strain at all?

not possible to have negative strain, but it is possible to have little to no strain
