Change to the 3.73s first, unless you already have the stall converter. It won't do much good with the gears that you have now.

The stall converter will make a big difference but what I would worry about is your cruise rpm being to low to let the torque converter competely couple which will cause huge heat and poor fuel economy. Might be a good idea to go to some shorter gears at the same time.

Before you decide on a converter talk to a couple of manufacturers about your combo and what you expect/want from the converter. The best advice you can get will come from them...

Iīm planing on a 3.42 for my Camaro '68. Itīs powered by a 355 Lt1 and a TH350 with ,exactly, a 2000 rpm stall converter. Currently I have a 2.73 rear-end and I canīt say the stall converter did a lot of difference; some but not much.

Well like everything the converter should be matched to the rest of the parts on the car but ya i think consulting a converter company would be a good call.
