most off the shelf converter stalls are listed from a formula of being behind a 350cid
so a 3000 stall might stall at 2600 with a 327
street use I'd go with 2500-2800

Don't buy less than a 10" 3500 stall converter for this.
You need more gear too.
The Crower cam you have does not get busy until well past 3000 rpm, in your 327.
A 9" 4000 stall is not too much.
