Post Converter stall and rear end gear

I am working on a 65 impala convertible. It has the original 327 w/powerglide trans. It originally was 250 HP. I put the factory 350 HP cam in it. What converter stall speed would work well with this and what would be a good all rear end ratio?

I know that it's got to be heavy......

I would call the converter manufacturer of your choice and ask for their recommendations. They are pros at this and want you to be happy (so you will recommend them to your friends).

That's what I did and now that's what I suggest you do.....I am happy with what they recommended for my combination!!

Yes I agree with Deuce Roadster, call your company of choice, I personnaly went through 3 companies and gathered the info. They ALL said the same thing, which made it easy, then went with my choice.

When I did mine, they wanted to know:
1. Engine specs.
2. Of course what trans.
3. Weight of vehicle w/driver.

They also asked what the car would be used for, such as, drag racing, street, or street/strip.
