Stall converter suggestions 1988 Caprice

I am getting. My transmission rebuilt on my car. I want to upgrade from a stock stall. It's a 1988 chevy caprice. I want a good stall that I can used for daily driving and on the strip. What size stall speed you think would work good on my setup. 350 4 bolt main bored .30, xe268h comp cam, flattop pistons, Holley 650, stockread but planing on upgrading in the future. 700 r transmission

Get a Vette TC thats the same year as your Caprice trans.
I run a V6 S10 TC which has teh same guts as teh Vette TC, and I stall to about 2800rpm behiond a Vortec 350 L31 injected engine.

if you have stock gears leave it stock high stall speed heavy care and 2 some thing gears would make the trans run hot and shift like a cvt unit at low speeds put some 3.73 in it and run a vette converter
