Torque convertor with 2.73's

Would I be able to use a B&M Torque master 2200 stall with 2.73's and a XE274 cam ina SBC350? It will have a large ranny cooler.

Yes you can, I would go at least 2500 w/ some gears and that 274 cam. I am running a Hughes street master 2200-2500 TH350 with the XE262 on a 357 and i have stock highway gears. But i am also upgrading to 3.42's.

My friend ran 3.08 gears in his chevelle with a 305 motor and it wouldn't light em up. now hes got a 383 with 3.73's on the way and now it'll burn em right off edit: i forgot to post my point lol the point is that if you run lower gears its not gonna move or light em up just my 2 cents

Look, this isnt a post where im asking about gears. I was asking if a 2500 stall would work with what i have now, 2.73's. I just wanted to know if it would burn my transmission up. I plan on running a cooler. No offense meant but my car is pretty quick now, even with the 2.73's. It makes me happy and when i find a good deal on a good rear end i will get it but until then i have to make do with what i have.

Whats your combination on the motor?
anways, YES they will work my friend has a 40'gmc he ran 2.?? gears w/ a 3000stall for like a year nothing happend and he didn't even run a cooler(neither am i). If performance is good keep the 2.73's because that'll save alot on gas compared to 3.73's.

Meangreen your tranny will be safe, just make sure you install the cooler. If you have overdrive, leave it in third while your driving, keep the rpms up a little higher. You mentioned both 2200 and 2500 rpm stall speeds, I would go with the 2500. It will work better with your cam. If you had used an XE268 I would suggest the 2200, but your a step up from that so go a step up with the stall speed.
