Get a converter with around 2,200 to 2,400 stall. Anything more and the converter will pass up some of your useful torque curve. Remember, a converter doesn't get full lock up until it reaches its approximate RPM range. Anything below that it will be slipping. It is like halfway engaging a manual clutch.
