That converter should be just right. I went with the Trick Flow TW heads and the .542"/.563" lift cam. I have a 2,800 to 3,200 stall B&M Holeshot. It works great for launches, but the rest of the time it makes the car run like the tranny is slipping. Once it does start to lock up, I am going way faster than the rest of traffic. That isn't always cool.
