Post 700r4 swap

Hello again. Besides the obvious what is needed for a swap from a 350 to a 700r4 without havung headaches, i have holes in the frame for the crossmember to be moved back, a shop that will shorten the driveshaft a shifter out of a later camaro that will bolt in, i am running 81 camaro with a 335 stroker with a 650 holley 4150 double pumper lunatai cam 480 lift 292 duration, 1.6:1 rockers, it idles ok at 1000, little lopey, i want to run the stock converter but someone told me to get a 2500 stall speed, will the stock converter be ok for a lttle while or will it lock up to early, and do i still need the lockup kit for the trans even tho i have the lockup plug from the t350 on the car,

I have a 400 sbc with a 4L60 (700R4) My cam is 274 deg.and I think 1000 rpm is too much for a stock converter. if budget is the reasone then put in a good 4.3 torque converter from a 700R4 it has a higher stall and allow the engine to idle without pulling so much at a light. The Lock up aspect has nothing to do with stall speed ,Yes it should be hooked up. and you may have to remove the pan to verify what two wires match the two wires from your plug. The red wire going to the solenoid will be the wire from the vehicle that has power with ignition on . the other wire will be the one that goes the return(ground)from the solenoid.

Thank you for all the info, sounds like it should be a pretyy easy thing to get done. I should be able to get a 4.3 converter for next to nothing, yes budget is key for now, i would love to put a 383/500 in it next year but for now have to go with what i got. Thanks again
