Which stall speed

Just picked up a trans am with a 388 motor trans is dead, 700r4, building a manual shift 350 to ogo in it, not sure which stall speed would be best. I estimate the car to be around 3000lbs now. cam is a 244/252 536. rear is a 3:73 posi. tire will be 29 inches. car will be a 1/4 mile strip car. Thanks for any suggestions.

With a tire that big and that cam, for drag use, 4000 would be my minimum and something 4500-5000 would be the best choice. Trying to compare your set-up to Fast68's is a total waste of time.

Thanks, for the reply, That gives me a direction to go on. I was thinking that 4000 or better would be what I needed, but needed some more insight.

IMO a 2400 would not be enough. You can always call the converter tech's and see what they say and make your choice from there.
