You simply need to proper flex plate with 454 weight and the bolt pattern for the converter as was mentioned.

Some 454 plates had 6 bolt holes in smae location, some had dual pattern spacing on bolt holes for converters
Some people are like Slinkies... Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
