Post stall converter quiz??

I recently had a B&M Holeshot 2000..... 2200 - 2400 rated stall in my car and it was stalling at 2500. My cam is rated at 3200 - 6400. So today I put in a B&M Holeshot 3000 stall that was rated at 2800 - 3200 . It is stalling at 3500 - 3600 which seems to loose..... What is the best way to figure out what stall speed is perfect for my car?? I have 3.73 rear gears, turbo 350 tranny stage 2 shift kit....I think I need a stall that would be right at 3000....???

And let me add my setup with my motor....

SBC 350
KB 9.5 pistons (standard bore)
Erson Hi Flow 2 H 235 duration...502 lift with 1.6 roller rockers
Edlebrock RPM Performer Intake
Edlebrock Performer Carb 600
Headers, X pipe, dual all the way out....


I have 18/235-50's all the way around.....

Thanks.....

The best way would be to contact a convertor company and give them all the info you just did along with the weight of your car.

And let that converter company not be B&M.

Cuda is right, they can set you up with the precise convertor with all the info. Stall speeds can vary by weight to HP ratio, some also "flash" to a little higher rpm on hard launches.

I talked with a local torque converter guy in my area. He is going to rebuild my converter for $120 which seems fair. Since my B&M Holeshot 3000 did not cost me a penny, that is a really good deal....!!!! He going to have it stall at 3000. He was talking about "flash" stall but I did not quite understand him. Could someone explain to me exactly what flash stall is.......Thanks

I've heard some bad things about TCI but never B&M. What gives?
