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.
