Red face do I need to install a stall speed?

I have a 79 camaro w/350 w/350 turbo and want to install a lunati 292 cam with 480 lift will I have to install a stall speed? It has a 308 gear.

Cool

Would probably be a good idea to raise the stall speed so the the car can use the maximu torue range of the engine. The car now is probably set up with a 1450 stall torque convertor and your mid torque range of the engine is 2200 to 2700? Run a desktop dyno program to get an exact figure and then find a convertor that puts you in the ballpark.

I like Lunati cams. Their catalog for the camshaft you are looking at (#00010) lists it as 292 Degrees, 230 at .050 with.480 lift at the valve says in the catalog........

Needs street converter and headers

Better save up and get a stall converter.....
