Post convereter advise needed...turbo 400

Hey All, Im running a 355 sbc, approx 400 hp, with a 250hp shot of spray and a turbo 400. The 400 WILL have all good parts including a brake and set up for this application. I need advise on a good converter for some street and weekend use. My motor should go to approx.7200rpm, 55 chevy all steel car. B&M...TCI...there many out there for this setup. Any personal experience on this setup?? THANKS DY

The cams specs will have allot to do with the selection.Also I think for nitrous you need a converter rated for it.

Cool

If you are actually going to spray the motor that much the converter will need "anti balloon plates" on it.
