Torque converter question.

I have a 327 with a th350 auto trans. I have an existing 2500 torque converter for it, used of course. What should I go with on this combo? I want a good street driver, not a race car, just smooth and reliable. I spilled a bunch of the fluid out of the one I have moving it around, so I guess my other question would be, if I reuse this one what kind of fluid do I put in it, and how much?

I am no expert but I don't think you really have to build the 327 to be able to use the stall. It will work on a stock engine. Now if you are asking how much you could build it and use the same stall is different. I am running a 332 (bored 327) with a Comp Magnum 280H, 10-1 compression, TH350 w/ a 2800 stall with no problems. As for the fluid, it is auto transmission fluid. Just refill as much as can to re-install it, some will leak out. Once you get it installed you top off your trany to fill it completely.
