TH350 & Stock Converter Behind A 383???

I just installed a Chevy 383 stroker in my 84 Cutlass. When I bought this car a few years ago it had a Chevy 350/350 trans. The trans had just been rebuilt with a tire screeching shift kit and still had the stock converter with it. I put this trans and stock converter behind the 383. I just completed the install yesterday and haven't took the car off the jack stands yet.

My question is.......what problems will I encounter, if any, using the stock converter with a motor pushing 400 plus hp? When I had the 350 in the car the trans did well....besides not kicking down after 3rd(that's another question).

I have a 2800 stall converter laying in the garage from the 350 long tail that was bolted to the 383 when the previous owner had it. I opted not to use it because I didn't know when he would want it back.

The TH350 will only be on the car until after it gets painted. I'm going to have a 200-4r built to match the specs of the motor. I still want to have a lil fun with the 350 before I swap it out, but would like to be forwarned of ANY possible problems.

What's the specs of the cam?
I suggest a good tranny cooler for any application in case you dont already have one.

I bought the 383 from a friend and I'm waiting for him to lacate the build sheet.

I'm looking into tranny coolers now.
