B&M Torque Master

My Buick 350 has a thumpr 279 cam and it idles good at 1000 rpm in park but drops to 550 rpm in drive saying potato- potato-potato but keeps running . Will a B&M 2300-2500 torkmaster converter make it idle right in drive and at a red light ?

the 2300-2500 torquemaster is just a stock GM 12" 2100 stall converter with the fins bent a little more.

You need a real 10" high stall converter. it will idle like a champ while in gear and go like hell when you rug it. Put some gear in the car too.

Buick 350 Skylark w thumpr cam wants 3.73 to 4.30 gears.
Thanks F-BIRD'88 I''ll get the 3600 stall , I have the 3.73's with the mini spool already installed , oh yeah its a 1981 chevy monte carlo with a Buick 350 and th-400 caddy tranny.
