Question Stall converter?

I've got a stock 305 with a turbo 350 tranny and a stock stall converter. I'm getting ready to put a 350 in and I think i'm going to have to put a new stall converter in but I don't know what size or stall to get. The car will be a street/strip car. thanks

don't go over a 2000 stall converter. I beleive the way you would want to go is a whole shot. If you put anything over a 2000 your basically building a race car. A 2000 stall is good for a 350 and just about anything that you want to keep streetable...I'm not an expert just my information supply and what I beleive is correct.

Stall convertors are one of those gray areas in the auto world. Some people can guess pretty good as to what's needed, but the majority of us cannot. I would suggest contacting the company that you would like to use and they will recommend the convertor that's right for your application. There is a lot more to it than simply the size of engine and the power it puts out.

What is your stall converter now?----What is your gear ratio in the rear-end?---Before one would choose a new stall converter it would be best to change the gears in the rear.---I have a 1969 corvette which has a 400 thm with a 350 and had 3.01 ratio in the rear.---I went to a 3.73 ratio and than changed the stall from stock 2000 to 2800 and the car now feels like it gained 150 to 200 more horse-power.---The stall must be in direct relation to the gear ratio.---If you go to a higher stall and not change the gear ratio---You will get slippage and cause heat to build up in the trans.---The thing to due is find out first what your riding around RPM is and than choose a stall that is not higher than that.---
