Help with torque converter??

Hey all,
I have a 406 sbc about 550 hp, also will eventually have a 200 shot of nitrous. I also am running a TH400 tranny, how crazy will I have to get with a converter?? Steel stator, anti ballooning plates?? Can someone reccomend a part # manufacturer?
Thanks

is your car a pure race car? or is it street/strip?

in either case, i highly recommend an ati convertor, they custom make them specifically for your setup, with 100% guarenteed stall speed

www.atiperformanceproducts.com go to the site, and look at the specs that you must know for the convertor, then give them a call

best of luck

The competent converter shops all build to engine spec when the application calls for it.

With a 200 shot you will need anti balloon plates, spot brazed or furnance brazed fins

You will need car weight , gear ratio , cam shaft specs, other related information when you call a converter company.

I strongly suggest Continental TC here in SoCal. Can't find a website right now, but look them up.

Car is more for the strip, but will see some limited street use.

If your racing/cruising...
I too would recommend going with a ATI converter. I am very satisfied with mine, also have many other parts from them without any thing negative to say.They are precise, so be prepared to answer lots of questions. I live near thier shop here in Maryland so I just dropped off my info and picked up my converter a few days later.
