(when I switched to a th-350 and 3600 stall it picked up 4.5 10th's)
There is a 4 letter ID code on these GM converters. I forget the code.
For the th700r4 a real deal 9"-10" 245MM true high perf high stall is the way to go.
The smaller converter is much much better.
If you want quick, get agressive with the the stall speed and gears even with a "268"
3500 is not too much at all. Most people wimp out and waste their money.

a 292H needs a 4000+ lock up.
Spoke to the car owner last night and he said what you did, stalls around 2200-2400. For now he will leave the 268 in it and install the same profilers that I'm still waiting on lol. Then a performer rpm and a 750dp. Car has a "mid length" headers (which I assume are just Shorties) 2.5 to a flowmaster merge, then 3" single to a ravin muffler. I really wish it was spring, I'm curious to see what it runs with a lowely 323 gear.
